Odyssey to Nihon

Mountain In Altai Region
Relentless Russian Roads to the Beauty of  Mount Fuji and Cherry Blossom Groves
Russia and Japan

The thought of driving further has always been on my mind, with the furthest you could possibly drive being to Singapore in Malaysia, with the a number of Visa's that is still possible.  Where else, in Asia, I have always enjoyed the Culture of Japan or Nihon,  This is now possible get a ferry from Vladivostok, Russia to Donghae, South Korea and then onto Sakaiminato, Japan.  Seems they only sail between March and November.  If we could get on board this sailing this opens up a whole new travelling experience of South Korean and Japanese exploration.

It is not possible to sail due to Covid-19, but in the future, sure it will sail again.


At the moment not sure which year this will take place, as we still will require to get a number of Visa's for Europe, Russia, South Korea and Japan.  The Car would also need to be kitted out for the long haul, getting a International Drivers permit for that, as well as insurance.
