What is the most intriguing place you have ever been?

Australia. That was my first place I lived and travelled outside of Japan. For a Japanese guy from the countryside, I had never seen that much foreigner in real life in fact I was a foreigner in Australia though. Everything was just so fresh to me, atmosphere, buildings, people, language that they speak.

Anyone you want to send love out to?
My mom and dad, sister and brother. My friends from all over the world who ride who don’t. igi bros as my second family and my sponsors Buoyancy BMX, Hommage bmx shop, devise clothing. At last, I have to mention these guys because they are the most awesome people I have ever met, Jean Willam Prevost, Benjamin Hudson, Christopher Thomas.
