The *Finished Search for a Man Named Satoshi

Do you know this man?
#256: Billion to One. The Satoshi card.
Some of the puzzle cards from Perplex City. There were 256 in total, the solutions to which would lead to a cube buried somewhere in the world.
#240: Elucidate

I was thinking of other things to try. Here’s what I got:

I don’t suppose anyone works for the CIA, FBI, Interpol, etc.. or knows someone who does. I bet you could do a pretty good face search in a place like that. Well, assuming you worked in the right area and didn’t mind risking your job and possible federal prison time.

Not every Japanese guy with hair brushed down on his forehead is a potential answer, gang.

The houses don’t look asian, more like european, and the hills might help too.

He’s wearing a scarf and overcoat too, it’s cold. I say Germany or Holland.

As for where the picture was taken, I would think Germany, since it looks like that pretty much everywhere in the more rural parts… but it might as well be in Austria, Switzerland, France or even somewhere in the UK.

So as someone who refuses to give up, I’m still in this. …

To this day, I believe the best lead we ever had was discovering the location of the picture.

[It makes you] wonder how many people you have randomly seen in your lifetime. There’s a billion to one chance you’ve already seen [Satoshi].
