HAKAMADA Kohei from Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, retired and immediately went on biking in July, 2010.
Showing the map he has visited 31 countries in the area such as Siberia, Central Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
He reached the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa at last and stayed there for a week attending the 16th World Congress of the Deaf.
He left his motorcycle for the repair in the motorcycle shop in South Africa, and returned home to Japan temporarily.
When he returned to Africa again, he resumed the bike trip for "three another years" around the earth.
"Even if one is not possible to hear or to speak, he is possible to travel."
