... where I could sit was blissfully devoid of bugs, apart form a stray caterpillar. I had a wonderful lunch of some lightly toasted bread with different jams and some fruit. Nashi is a fruit you need to try by the way. It is something in between of an apple and a pear. It is very popular in Japan.
