This is it! We leave Tokyo tomorrow to the Northermost tip of Japan.
It's been 7 months since we've left London and packed our lives in boxes. For the past 215 days (ish) we've been through some interesting moments such as being stuck with a broken bus in the middle of Patagonia, climbing a 6,000m volcano, swimming with penguins, getting to meet remote tribes in northern Lao and horse riding in central Mongolia (for more details, go to our pics and vids section).
We have arrived in Tokyo and we are now facing another challenge: Cycling 4,000km (2,500 miles) across the four main islands of Japan. It was fun to talk about it and we're afraid it is now time to do it.
We are doing it for Advance, a London based domestic violence charity. We’d like to thank our friends who have already donated for this good cause and we’d also like thank in advance those who will shortly dig deep in their pocket and donate . To do so, go to www.justgiving.com/yumiandthomas and give whatever you feel like.
Thank you for following us and leaving comments on our blog from time to time. We are not sure how easy it will be to communicate and update you while on the road but we will do our best to keep you posted via the blog (no, not everybody is on Facebook).
Yumi and Thomas
