    "A trip I'll always remember"

    I often remember the trip when I was a university student.

    I went to Nagaoka city in Niigata prefecture for volunteer work with my friend.
    The central part of Niigata earthquake happened on 23 October 2004. I watched a TV newscast that reported the tragic scene at Nagaoka city. I suddenly decided to go there to volunteer that night.

    I called my friend to suggest we go there together. My best friend willingly agreed with my suggestion.
    We decided to go to Nagaoka city by my motorcycle, because public transportation of the disaster area had stopped. We started from Nara prefecture toward Niigata prefecture.

    On our way there, we had an accident at Toyama prefecture. Our motorcycle slipped on the rainy road. We were injured. My wound was stitched at the hospital. I thought that we should give up on the trip at that moment.
    My driving injured my friend. I was shocked by the fact.

    However, my friend said that we should do what we decided to do at the start. I was helped by those words. My motorcycle was broken. My motorcycle couldn't run straight. Therefore we decided to go to our destination by hitchhiking. We were picked up by a sweet shop's owner and a truck driver.

    Finally we reached there, Nagaoka city in Niigata prefecture!
    We spent two days traveling to the destination. We were very tired then.
    However, we volunteered to help the earthquake victims for two days. We worked for traffic control and carried relief supplies for disaster victims in the regional evacuation center.

    I sometimes remember that adventure.
    Furthermore, I think that it is important to never give up after deciding to do something with my friend.

    In the future I also want to go around Japan on a motorcycle!
