Japanese man’s Harley-Davidson turns up in B.C. after being swept away by tsunami
The owner of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle that washed up on B.C.’s Haida Gwaii — a rusty remnant of the devastating tsunami that struck Japan a year ago — has been identified.
Japanese media has identified the owner of the bike as 29-year-old Ikuo Yokoyama.
“I’m very thankful that it came back,” he told local broadcaster NHK in Japanese. “I would like to thank the man who found my bike in person, but because it’s hard to do that, I’d like to thank him here right now.” (Photo: Screengrab from NHK World News)
