I went to Google Maps and requested directions from my home in Glendale, California, to Tokyo, Japan. There are 57 instructions. Once I make my way up to Washington state, it tells me to do the following:
15. Kayak across the Pacific Ocean
2,756 mi
Entering Hawaii
Then, after navigating that state:
29. Kayak across the Pacific Ocean
3,879 mi
Entering Japan

  1. that is so weird. I'm in Berkeley and it also told me to go to Seattle. Why can't I leave from SF damnit? It also could get me to Australia, via Hawaii and Japan, but not to Vietnam, Malaysia, China, Thailand, India, Russia, or Paris.
