男の船出(re:日本一周#二年目スタート)

2017年 7月29日

東京地方の天気は晴れ

午前10時、1人の男が家族と近所の人たちに見送られて、東京港フェリーターミナルに向けて走り出した

自転車日本一周 2年目の夏が始まる

2016年は自宅の埼玉から日本最南端 沖縄の波照間島まで走った

そして2017年は 本土最南端 鹿児島県の佐多岬からひたすら北へ 本州最北端の青森 大間崎を目指す

そんな2017年のスタート地点鹿児島に行くのに、なぜ東京港に向かうの?って疑問に思った人もいるかもしれない

実際飛行機も新幹線も通じているのに…

そう。ヨコイシは「船旅」という名のロマンを味わってみたかったが為に、わざわざフェリーという選択肢を選んだのだ

しかも東京から鹿児島まで直通のフェリーは無い。なんと3回もフェリーを乗り継ぎして鹿児島まで向かうという、超非効率アンド非常識なロマンを追い求めようというバカな男になっていたのだ(確実に自転車日本一周を始めてから頭のネジが何本か飛んでいってる)

詳しい行き方はこうだ

①7/29 午後6時 東京港発 翌朝30日の昼に徳島着

②7/30 午後4時 徳島港発 午後6時和歌山港着

③7/30-31 和歌山で一泊

④7/31 和歌山から大阪まで80キロ自転車で走り、午後6時のフェリーで大阪港発のフェリーに乗り込む

⑤8/1 午前9時 鹿児島県志布志港に到着

なんてこった。改めてこうして見るとやっぱりあの時の俺はおかしい。確実に頭のネジが何本か飛んで行って、残りのネジもガバガバに緩んでいるではないか。

とにかく!!

まずは東京港に向かう為に7/29の朝に走り始めて向かう

東京港では大学の親友が見送りに来てくれた

親友たちに激励のメッセージを書いたハチマキを受け取り、自転車に巻きつける

そしていよいよフェリーに乗り込む時間

という時に突然のゲリラ豪雨

別れを惜しむ時間も無く、急いでフェリーターミナルに向かうことになった

毎年、初日は荒れるというジンクスはこの時に生まれることになる

ゲリラ豪雨は嵐のように強くなったが、フェリーは止むのを待ってはくれない

ずぶ濡れになりながらフェリーのスロープを勇敢に上がり、いよいよ船出だ

すぐに冷えた体を癒す為に、フェリー唯一の楽しみと言っていいかもしれないオーシャンビューのお風呂に浸かって、ふと窓の外を見ると隅田川花火大会の花火が打ち上がっていた

どうやらもう雨も止んだらしい

ここから3日後の8月1日

いよいよ山あり谷あり、熊あり?の超絶怒涛の2年目が始まる

ということで振り返りにはなるけど、アメブロの時よりは面白く書けるように頑張るので、是非暇つぶしに2年目のブログも見てほしい

    a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone ..

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  • Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying
    to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.

    If you know of any please share. Kudos!

  • I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a
    blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  • With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has
    a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you
    know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate
    it.

  • I believe everything said made a ton of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to write a awesome headline?
    I ain’t saying your content is not good., but suppose you added a post title
    that grabbed people’s attention? I mean 男の船出(re:日本一周#二年目スタート) | JAPARNEY is kinda vanilla.
    You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
    create news headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people excited about
    everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your website a little bit
    more interesting.
