Support Tohoku Earthquake Victims!

Do you want to support the victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and at the same time know exactly where the money goes? The Tohoku Donation page was created to do just that, support the victims of the earthquake/tsunami but also enable donators to track where the money goes.

1200 m Up and 2000 m Down

Exhausted after a day hike in the World Heritage on Yakushima – climbed a total of 1200 m and descended a total of 2000 m while covering a distance of 22 km.

Passed so many beautiful cedar trees 1000+ years old. Just wished I could have a talk with them – what would they say, what wisdom would they share?

The main attraction was Jomon Sugi. A tree of 5 m in diameter and beloved to be at least 2000 years old. Beautiful.

A very hard but rewarding hike.
