19-25.06.2014 [ Arrarat – Melbourne? ]

( Ararat – Beaufoot – Ballarat – Ballan – Melton – Melbourne)



I was heading to Glenroy, Melbourne, 34km far from here.

I was taking back road, and that way has many hills.



So many traffic, strong wind, not kindly people made me sad, everything tired for me.

I saw “Seven Eleven” today, that time I felt I’m into the great city.



This day was very tough day.


But I made it!!

I have arrived at Melbourne!!!!!!!



This charity walk is quite hard chalenge, but I want to support for tsunami victims and children.

If you have a time, watch this short video.

I hope you can understand why am I trying to this walk.

This is such a impressed movie.


【 We will Always Remember You 】



When I have arrived at Glenroy, one Japanese guy welcomed me.

His name Nobby, he is a pilot.

He and his friends welcomed me and they made Japanese hot pot, some beautiful meal for me!!

Also Japanese beer too!!



I was enjoying that dinner and conversation with them.

I felt relived.


Thank you very much everyone!!


Finally I have arrived in Melbourne today!!

From Perth to here, I was taking almost 3,250km.

This way was so long and so hard, but I made it!!

I was taking a bath, and good sleep.

I met again my friends, from Adelaide and my home town Shimane prefecture!!



We watched Japanese World Cup football game in city, eat Ramen noodles and Japanese meal.
