We've had a good visit in Tokyo, spending time with our family here and preparing for the bike ride. This picture is of Sho helping to clean his grandmom's grave, which we visited with Sho's granddad.
With help from my colleagues in Intel's Tokyo office, I set up a Willcom D4 mobile Internet device to use to post blogs on the ride across Japan. I also made sure my ATM card works, double checked my GPS device usage, and met with the producer from the Japanese national broadcaster NHK. They will send a camera crew to meet us on Shiretoko Peninsula to do the first round of filming for their profile of us in Papa Saurus TV show.
We leave today for Sapporo, and start to ride on Thursday!
