Ryo Ambe is in Seattle, nearing the end of his bicycle tour up the West Coast from San Diego to Vancouver, BC.
But Ambe’s tour isn’t just any bike tour. He wants to express his thanks to the US for its disaster relief support following the devastating 2011 tsunami that struck Japan.
To further show his thanks, he has been cleaning up trash along the coast during his ride. How cool is that?
If you’re free this afternoon, you can see him at the Japanese Cultural & Community Center at Rainier and Weller.
