Kanagawa Toy Run

This will be the final post in my “get the 2012 stuff out the door before the end of January 2013″ series!


Every year, riders from Gaijin Riders, Japan Riders, and SBK (all active sites with real communities—far more useful and informative than this fossilized site) dress up as Santas and reindeer to bring presents to children at orphanages in Kanagawa Prefecture.

For privacy reasons, I can’t upload the pictures of the huge smiles on the kids’ faces, but we had a great time playing, eating pizza, and joking around with the kids, and their smiles were a better present for us than anything we could give to them.


This giant reindeer’s going to have to make time to visit them next year too.
