The Long Riders' Guild

Samurai Ride Across Siberia

The most noted Japanese Long Rider was Baron Yasumasa Fukushima. This descendant of a noble Samurai family was sent to Berlin, Germany on military duty.

When the time came to return home in 1892, the dashing Japanese horseman elected to ride his horse Gaisen, (Triumphant Return) 14,000 kilometres (9,000 miles) from Berlin to Tokyo, Japan.
