    Nathan received the Super Cub from Morinaga-san at the studio at TV Tokyo. He was a bit shy in the beginning but soon gave us a happy face having received his new partner! It will be a long journey for about 3,000km from Tokyo to Hokkaido (Soya misaki) to Aomori in 3 weeks. He's set the goal to arrive in Aomori just in time for the cherry blossom season.

    10 minutes to have the engine started…

    Nathan stays at a hotel to rest on his first day and is all ready to start his journey but the engine won't start… He keeps trying and finally gets it running after 10 minutes. The motorcycle was well maintained before given to him but after all it's over 20 years old, seems to have an issue starting the engine.

    The very first destination is the Jungu Stadium! Nathan is a huge fun of baseball and he wants to check out Japanese baseball games. Though he seems to be more interested in the powerful supporters rather than the game itself that he keeps taking pictures of them instead.
