Daisuke hates to ask for things. Daisuke does accept all gifts thankfully. That's why I, the webmaster, wrote this page.
Travel is, to normal people at least, an expensive undertaking. It's a miracle that he's lasted 8 years on US$ 50,000.00. Daisuke has turned low-budget travel into an art (and a way of life).
But sometimes he needs real cash: to pay for visa (US$ 120.00 to just go to Russia would pay for many travelling days), to buy spare parts or to replace broken equipment.
Anyone can contribute: host him for one or more nights, refer him to your friends who live along his route, send parts or supplies to his current postal address, and ... send money!
Periodically, I will transfer any gifts to Daisuke's account. Note: we haven't figured out how to convert PayPal funds into real money, and that's why we prefer the other means.
