Nice to meet you, everyone.

XNUMXth year living in MexicoThis is Isao Iwasaki of .

Even in my private life, I love traveling (poor travel), and I have driven almost all the important points in the southern half of Mexico (south of the latitude where Zacatecas is located).When I go by car, I can see the scenery along the way.

I also love driving so much that I have driven 36 times around the world (more than XNUMX km) in Mexico. (Continuing lifelong accident-free record)

My hobby is salsa (dance).I started doing it because I'm not good at it, but I like it anyway, and even if I'm tired or sad, if I have a silly ruckus with my friends over tequila and salsa, everything will be blown away (laughs). I got married in XNUMX, and it was salsa that led me to meet my Mexican wife.

Also, after coming to Mexico, I came to like Japanese sake.I also have a license as a sake taster, and I like to explain Japanese sake to Mexican people, including tequila.

Living as a Japanese (foreigner) in a 36% Mexican society with XNUMX% Mexican values, traveling XNUMX kilometers in Mexico, the reason why I can say "This is Mexico!" I started this business because I want people to experience the unadorned goodness of Mexico that cannot be explained in , and things that cannot be tasted in Japan or other countries with all five senses.

The reason I started traveling was when I was in agony during my university life, I read the story of Naomi Uemura, an adventurer who disappeared in the winter of Denali (formerly known as McKinley). It was a paperback called Bet on the Mountain.At that time, I thought, "Let's go abroad!"But it has no clear purpose.I simply wanted to stop living the way I had been living by inertia.

I wanted to find a job if I wanted to go anyway, so I searched for an English-speaking country where I could go cheaply and decided on Canada.After I settled down, I worked 3 part-time jobs in order to raise funds, and I was only doing either school or part-time work.

In Canada, I wanted to go to English school for only three months and then work on a farm, but it was out of season and I ended up bored with nothing to do.After a lot of thinking about what to do, I thought, "I'll do something crazy once."I stopped by famous sightseeing spots, so I traveled about 5 kilometers by bicycle.There are inns, restaurants, and shops in the town, but between towns are forests, forests, forests.Of course there are no hotels or restaurants.I spent two and a half months sleeping outdoors in the woods, under bridges, and on the roadside, making sandwiches with bread, ham, and mustard that I bought in town and eating them every day.I used to run 2-odd kilometers every day, but one day I hurt my knee, so I spent two weeks sleeping outdoors in a park to rest.I had nothing to do, so I went to a cafe every day and wrote letters to my parents and friends.It seems that I looked too poor and poor, so the clerk brought me a lunch set for free. (Happiness!) It was a moment when I felt really grateful to myself, who had no money and only ate sandwiches.

By literally doing it on my own, I was able to experience the magnificent nature of Canada first-hand, overcoming problems such as bicycle theft, injuries, and fatigue. did.

I spent my 20's and early XNUMX's like that, and I'm still here.
