36ml. The hot sun wakes me up making the tent like a greenhouse. 6am so I make a coffee and have some cornflakes. After nagging to a Czech couple who are touring here for a year I set off quite late hoping to make a campsite 110kms away. On the way I call into a visitor center for the marsh/wetlands of Kottaro. I get some WiFi here and discover there’s an immigration office in Kushiro where I’m not too far off route, so I decide to go there to see if I can extend my visa. The stress of rushing to fukuoka for the 28th and doing 100km days wasn’t a pleasant thought, ok I could have got a ferry to make up time but I like the idea of more time on Hokkaido and not rushing. After 40mins and luckily a nice man in immigration who spoke English, I’m now ok for another 90days. With this new situation I change direction and head towards Nemuro and make it to a campsite 12ml past Kushiro on route 142.
