I arrived in Japan in February 2011. Two weeks later a 9.0 magnitude earthquake shook the foundations of my new apartment and a 10m tsunami destroyed the homes and lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
Three years later and I am diving head first into this country that I have called home. I will ride my bike (chari) from Cape Sata (mainland Japan's most southerly point) to Cape Soya (the most northerly point) a journey of around 2500 miles.
Please help me and the people of Tohoku!
