Went to Tokyo yesterday, quick trip to film an interview with Kaburagi-san a well known world class trail runner who is sponsored by the North Face. Very nice guy he told me that for training he went running along route 246 in Tokyo for 90 km the day before yesterday. Wow, that is a long way to run in the hot and humid weather in Tokyo. He said he stopped at drink machines to buy water about 10 times, about once every 10 km. He will be competing in the “Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc” later this month. 166 km in total and he runs it in about 20 hours. Incredible.
Thank you Mr. Kaburagi

Typhoon on the way up the coast of Japan created some beautiful cloud formations.
