Mr. Watanabe is from Ise, Japan. He doesn’t speak English. I don’t speak Japanese. In the five hours we walked together I learned he likes to play tennis, watch Hanshin Tigers Baseball. He is 71 years old and is walking all of the 1,200 km hike on his own to honour his beloved wife who passed a few years ago. (at 第13番札所 大日寺)
