Social Hitchhiking Chugoku japan Chugoku japan Kansai Chugoku japan Kansai japan
My host in Takehara offered me to give me a ride to drop me off in a gas station on the highway in the good direction as he had to go for a meeting for his job. That is what I call "Social hitchhiking" :)
Ino picked me up for 30km on the highway. She is a student on her spring break. And was speaking a very good english!
Father and son
After a very long waiting time (The longest in my all hitchhiking experience), a father and his son picked me up on their way back home in Osaka. The father was speaking a little bit english. He offered me some traditional japanese sweets called "Kibi"
2 salary men on the way back to their office picked me up and made a detour to drop me off where I was staying in Kobe. They was speaking few english.

Bad experience Chugoku japan
Creepy young japanese
Heavy rainy day. I had just around 50-60km to hitchhike. I decided for once to hitchhike during the afternoon and started around 16:00. I know that it isn't the best time to start and that it is statistically where some people with creepy mind and bad intention can stop, well this one was a perfect example of it.
Nothing happened at the end but I'm deeply persuaded that… (read on in Trip)

Then we drove till Yamaguchi where he offered me lunch and where he had to stop for a meeting for an hour (I waited in the car) and then drove me to Hiroshima on his way home to Osaka.

A guy and his soon picked me up. They were barely speaking english but we could talk using translators on the phone. This guy is an employee of the company who rebuilt the Dejima bridge (If you visit Nagasaki and are interested in history, I advice you to go to visit the Dejima Museum, it as very interesting).
My first ride in Japan was in a Mercedes-Benz Cabriolet! I had never been in a so fancy and expensive car in my life… Conclusion, it's not very big my backpack was taking fully filling the trunk… and it's not very comfortable… But Hell! It was a cabriolet!!! Well we couldn't open the roof as temperatures are around 0°C in Japan now :/
2 friends picked me up and made a detour to drop me off in the Nagasaki Highway on a service area. We had a lot of fun trying to speak and understand each other.
