Yacht carries Ginowan man throughout Japan

Date Posted: 2010-12-02

A 73-year-old Ginowan City man has done it again; he’s fulfilled a dream by navigating his way around all Japanese islands.

He started the first time 12 years ago, taking a month to venture around each island in Okinawa. “Yes, I had to do this travel again,” he said, describing the voyage he began planning ten years ago, when he was 63.

The man left Ginowan Marina May 1st, traveling first to Nagasaki in Kyushu. He says he met many wonderful people during his seven-month sojourn.

“When I visited a harbor, there were always local people welcoming me, and I made many friends.” Equally important, he says, was the packet of Okinawan foods awaiting him upon arrival at each port. His wife handled all the logistics, insuring his favorite foods were shipped and waiting at each port.
