A man start traveling with 1.5$(160JPY) when he left.
 Hi,My name is Keiichi Iwasaki,I am Japanese ,traveling Since 2002, I left Japan ,Never return ,Never go back,keep traveling until today (March,2016). It means almost 14years I have kept traveling. After I left Japan, I went across South Asian countries and past Tibet across Himalayan range, to India. And now I am in Italy(Year 2016). You are wondering "Am I missing Japan or not" Actually not so much because my parent and friends sometimes to see me during this 10years and Nowaday we can easyly contact over Internet ,Also almost every day I meet new people and that makes me feel lonely.Sometimes I miss Japanese food though. if you travel very quick ,It only takes few mounths for around the world ,But I am going slow by using local bicycle,It takes a lot of time ,And I can see much more things and meet more people living in this world.This style is my favorite.

I show tricks on street in Italy
 Usually I am using local bicycle,And till 2016 I changed 4times my bike .Because of twice stolen and twice broken.
Many people ask me,"why you do this kind of traveling?",I always say ,If I use airplan to come here,I just only see here ,But If I use bicycle and come slowly I could see more things.(but It takes a lot of time)It is important for me,to know "what is the world like" ,more than living one place peacefully.
