Osaka is currently in the middle of a month-long test run for its long-awaited bicycle sharing program, which is known as Coideco.
Sixteen ports are located around the city where bikes can be rented and then returned.
If the test run is a success and the city introduces a full-time bike sharing program - like those in Barcelona, Paris, Kyoto, and many cities - getting around Japan's second city will be that much easier.
