US to Japan is 8,812 miles and will take about 35 days 18 hours, according to Google maps. Then Japan to China, a distance of 2,552 miles will take only an additional 2 days 11 hours. Note that your speed is much much higher in the Japan to China segment. Puzzling, no?
Well the reason is simple. In the US to Japan segment, you have to kayak across the Pacific ocean. Step 27 of the directions
27. Kayak across the Pacific Ocean 2,756 miles
42. Kayak across the Pacific Ocean 3,789 miles
But when you go from Japan to China, you have
117. Jet ski across the Pacific Ocean 486 miles
The lesson is simple. Kayaking across the Pacific ocean takes a very long time. I think you should use jet skies instead. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.
