Cycling Across Japan As It Recovers From Disaster

I just watched a video documenting three gaijin bicyclist riding across Japan from the most southern point (Cape Sata) to the most northern point (Cape Soya). They also did this not long after 3/11.

However, watching it you wouldn’t know it.

You can watch it here on Andrew Marston’s website and can also get more info about the trip with additional media to help you plan your own journey.

Andrew, Scott, and Dylan’s journey across Japan is beautifully recorded and edited in a way that this video comes across more as a friend’s home video montage than a straight documentary and I’m good with that.

At the end.
The end.

They hit some spots I’ve been to (in Kyoto) and others that are still on my list (Nagasaki/Hiroshima).  I get excited when I see people in exact places I’ve visited and curious about others I may have missed or have yet to cross off my list.

It’s a casual video and you can watch it for free. If it doesn’t inspire you to visit another country, then I’ve wasted both of our time.
