Japan by Bicycle (Complete Documentary)
www.youtube.com
A beautiful documentary about three guys who bike the entire length of Japan. Despite their lack of experience on bikes and seemingly spontaneous nature of the trip, one would think that these three would either fail or produce a boring, mediocre film. This is definitely not the case. This film has inspired me to do long distance traveling on bicycles. What starts off almost like a home movie turns into a moving documentary of an incredible journey. Here is what the creator had to say about the film: "One month after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami we cycled the entire length of Japan to raise relief aid. Subtitles in Japanese and English (日本語字幕付き). Thanks to you all who donated! The trip exceeded its $10,000 goal and raised over $13,000 of relief aid for quake victims!" TRIP STATS: Distance: 3500km Days: 43 Pedal Time: 175hrs Amount raised: $13,092 (USD) Total crashes: 7 (Andrew:4, Scott:3, Dylan:0) PURPOSES OF THE FILM: 1. Inspire people to challenge themselves and set big goals. If we (3 average guys) can do something like this, anyone can. 2. Show people that Japan is still an awesome place to visit even after the quake.
