Itchie (pronounced like itchy) , who is just on the way running 10,000km around the country taking almost one year, stopped in Osaka.
Osakan runners welcomed him at the party where there were 3 other cross-country runners including me.
He started his trek in Tokyo 47 days ago, covering about 1,000km so far.
His backpack says he is currently on a trek running around Japan.
He's going to leave Osaka on 22nd and next stop is Kobe.
If you see me him running along the way, be sure to say hello and cheer him up!
