According to Google, he quit his job and began his six-month journey on his 31st birthday. Before his GPS trip, Takahashi had never been to Tokyo. This idea of his gave him the opportunity to explore all kinds of new domains while sleeping in his car at night for shelter. The real question is did he get a positive response to his question, well of course he did! His success then gave him the courage to produce more than 1,000 GPS art pieces stretching over 1000,000 kilometers in 24 countries. His website states, "He is a professional GPS artist with more than 1400 artworks. Drawn more than 100000 kilometers in 24 countries."
