Traveling the world on our motorcycles, we have the possibility to see many beautiful things but unfortunately it is inevitable to encounter along the way some real tragedy.
Our itinerary took us on the east coast of Japan in the provinces of Miyagi and Fukushima where the 11th of March, 2011 a huge Tsunami devastated the area. After more than a year later, it is obvious to our eyes how ferocious this tsunami was. The heart and sorrow of the local people is still very tangible. We ride the roads of the disaster in absolute disbelief and so Matteo, Thierry, and myself pass the rest of the entire day in silence.
Our respect and admiration for the Japanese population is high, especially after we witness the great desire they show in rebuilding and restarting, united in a great sense of dignity and honor.
On August 24th 2012, We travelled to see the Peace Museum In Hiroshima to directly witness the damages caused by the Atomic bomb. It is unnecessary to describe our mood after our visit to the museum.
