40DAYS, 35RIDES, 3100km

In 2003, I hitchhiked all of Japan from Wakkanai to Kagoshima because I wanted to discover the soul of Japan. It was the reason I stayed. 
In 2017, I did it again, the other way to share that same love for Japan I discovered 14 years earlier. 
Along the way, you’ll learn a lot about the place I now call home.
