It was a single visit to Kenya in 1972 that completely changed Michio Hiraiwa’s philosophy on life. He fell in love with the country, and visited there 150 times over the past 40 years. Once a workaholic, Hiraiwa says he now leads a stress-free and relaxed life, visiting Kenya and Tanzania four times a year with his daughter, Masayo.

At the age of 78, he wears several hats — travel writer, photographer, collector and expert on stamps, and goodwill ambassador for Kenyan tourism.
