Nigel from Christchurch, NZ
Is it not delightful to have friends coming from distant quarters?
Nigel is a cyclist from Christchurch, New Zealand whom I met in New Zealand on my way running across the nation.
This time he is cycling across Japan from Kagoshima to Hokkaido.
His mission is to ring WORLD PEACE BELL.
There are 21 WORLD PEACE BELLs in the world, 5 of which are in Japan. One is in Ishigaki-jima Island, Okinawa. One in Cape Soya, Hokkaido and the other 3 is in Honshu Island.
He visited Motohama Ryokuchi Park, Amagasaki yesterday.
Today he rang one in Tsurumi Ryokuchi Park, Osaka and tomorrow he'll be in Enryakuji Temple, Hieizan, Shiga.
After that we walked around Osaka Castle Park.
He's going to be back in New Zealand by 28th of July.
Hope he enjoys the rest of his journey.
