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.
