Hiro’s Journal / ヒロ日記より 04.21.2019, after Day 55

昨日の午前、無事に福島県いわき、小名浜のいわきサンマリーナに着岸しました。 皆様のお陰様だと改めて感謝いたしております。応援してくださった方々、ありがとうございました。 また、電話を聞いてタイプしてくれた姉、写真を撮ってくれたダグ、翻訳とアップロードをしていただいた尚美さん。3人に感謝しています。 皆様、本当にありがとうございました。

We arrived in Iwaki Sun Marina in Onahama, Fukushima yesterday morning. We would not have been made it without your support, so thank you all! I would like to mention my sister, Rie did typing for me from our phone calls, Doug, who took pictures, Naomi did all the translation for the blog. My deepest appreciation for those three. And thanks all for reading our blog!

    1. Congratulations Hiro and Doug on sucessfully reaching Japan, your dream and inspiring us. It has been a humbling experience to follow your journey, read your descriptions of your voyage and what it meant to you. Both you and Doug and your voyage together will forever enhance awareness, change the ill founded perception of the visually impaired and inspire others to have dreams and pursue them. Looking forward to having a beer with you at O’Brien’s this fall when we return to San Diego. Our very best, Bill and Courtney


  3. Welcome home Dream Weaver, Hiro and Doug. Job well done by all. The pictures were fantastic – just loved them. What’s next???? Maybe that could be your next post. I’m having blog withdrawal already. LOL

    It is truly a Happy Easter


  4. Congratulations Dream Team. Your bodies will certainly be rocking for a few days. Enjoy the hot shower, or even better hot Japanese bath on shore and recharge. You both look great, but must tired enough to sleep for days. We look forward to seeing you both back in San Diego, and hearing details of the voyage.
    Gros Bisous,
    Rob et Sandrine
