Travel Japan by Train ? by Bus ? Try Hitchhiking !

 

Santa Hitch-hiked over 6,000km around Japan. We interviewed her at Kanalian after her trip.

Interviwer Shaun

Why did you decide to hitchhike in Japan? Is hitchhiking just a way to get from one place to another?
Of course not. It’s a lot more than that. I never go sightseeing, and the most important thing is to talk with local people and stay with them. I wanted to see people’s regular day; what they do when they get up, and so on.Hitchhiking is the best way to do accomplish that. On the first day my friend in Tokyo took me to a highway service area, and I stood just outside the area and put my thumb out. I was nervous and expected to be there for hours, but it was maybe three minutes.

How much Japanese did you speak before you started your trip?
I understood the questions people asked, but I couldn’t put a sentence together.
But, I spoke for many hours every day and used my Japanese a lot. So now I can talk for hours non-stop. I talk too much.

Where did you hitchhike to?
I started in Tokyo and went to Soya Misaki, Hokkaido, the northernmost part of Japan. Then from Wakkanai I went to Kagoshima the southernmost of Kyushu, and from Kagoshima back to Tokyo.

How is Hitchhiking in Japan ?
Japan is the best country for hitchhiking in the world.
People are willing to help. They want to create a good impression of Japan and Japanese people for you. Even the Japanese police are very nice. And I think in Japan it’s much safer. Here people usually pick you up not because they want you to entertain them or something else, but because they’re worried about you.

How long did your trip take?
About one and a half months. I started at 6 or 7 in the morning, and I was at my destination at 12 or 1.

How many people picked you up?
About 200.  I didn’t have many long rides, except if I was lucky enough to find one in a highway service area that was going to my destination for the day.

So how do you find someone who’s going to your destination?
It’s very easy, because every car’s number plate shows the prefecture where the person lives. So I looked at the number plates and find one with the prefecture I want to go, and wait for them to come to the car. When Japanese people see a single backpacker waiting, they will go to the person on their own and ask where they’re going and offer a ride.

So if you come back to Japan again, will you hitchhike again?
I think I’ve already seen a lot of Japan, so if I hitchhike it would be the same roads again. Next time, I will walk.

『 FRYING DUTCHMAN /フライングダッチマン』 の Human Error(ヒューマンエラー)という曲は、日本の電力の構図と、今後のエネルギーシフトをダイレクトに物語り、福島第一原発事故から今まで言えなかった実際の声を集約したソウルフルな叫び! 1曲 /17分の大作。

今までの『原発による依存社会』から『原発に頼らない未来』にするためには、もっともっと多くのアーティストが様々な分野で表現を通じて、これからを担う世代へと伝えていかなければなりませんが、その活動を支えるには、多くの方々の協力を必要としています。

Pakpoe Live 朴保ライブ『Talking Together ~私たちはどこへ?』

12月10日(土)開場19時 ・ 開演19時30分

会場 ゲストハウス・カナリアン 会費 2,000円(1ドリンクとカレー付き)

この曲は『夜を駆けて』(主演 山本太郎)の音楽を担当された主題歌『いつの日にかきっと』

Pakpoe 朴保(パクポー)さんのライブ『一緒に話そう〜Talking Together 』を12月10日(土)の夜7時半からカナリアンで行います。

2011年3月11日の東日本を襲った大地震と津波、福島第一原子力発電所の事故から今にいたるまで、様々な思いや、これから私たちに出来る事を皆で話してみようよ!という『ライブ&トーク』です。

朴保さんは、全国のピースフェスティバルで、人権集会や脱原発運動などでも子供からお年寄りまで歌を通じて問題意識を語りかけ、沖縄の基地問題やアイヌの祭り、南北朝鮮半島の統一などでは民族の壁を超えた『平和』を伝える音楽活動を30年間続けています。http://www.pakpoe.com/

その歌はメッセージロックと呼ばれ、聞く人の心に響く歌声と、曲に込められた言葉から、潜在していた勇気とパワーが沸き上がり、そして再び熱い思いに問い返えされる。いつまでモヤモヤとしているのか?一生は一度しかなく、なぜに『今』をいたずらに過ごしているのか?そうまだ間に合う、少しずつでいい、これから始めてみようと!

みなさんぜひ『朴保ライブ』&『Talking Together~私たちはどこへ?』へお越しください。
李哲也
