(Newser) – Yasushi Takahashi quit his job six years ago and traveled all over Japan for six months, covering more than 4,450 miles—and he ended up getting a Guinness World Record and a wife out of it, the Boston Globe reports. Takahashi used his GPS tracker to draw "Marry Me" across the islands of Japan, topped off with a heart with an arrow through it.

Even though this happened in 2008, Takahashi's home movie, complete with quirky, emoticon-filled captions, just recently started making waves online, Yahoo reports. As the Globe's Doug Saffir notes, it may have seemed strange to Takahashi's then-GF/now wife that he took off for that long, but apparently she did say yes. (A Chinese man's 99-iPhone proposal didn't go as well.)
