    Today was a day of taxi's, trains and ferries. We are heading to another of the Japanese islands – this is the smallest of the 4 main islands of Japan and sees less tourists. One of the island’s claim to fame is the 88 buddhist temple pilgrimage that people do. It is 1400 km and takes about 40 days to complete. It is a similar idea to the Camino Trail in Spain. Each of the pilgrims wears all white clothing and a straw hat.

    But let me back up. We decided to ...

    ... We then headed back to Dogo Onsen and decided to visit the oldest onsen in town: dogo honkan. Unfortunately, men and women are still separated but at least we took the option to meet in a common room where you can have tea and biscuits together. It was a nice experience and Willem loved their yukatas so much that he even bought one with the white heron on it. The emblem of the bath house is ...

    ... had done it!! We then had to get to the train station to go to Matsuyama where we were staying for the night. We finally arrived at the hostel at 9:00pm. Sadly we had missed the hours they had their onsen open but we had amazing showers. The hostel was really nice and the guy very helpful. Our room was tatami mats, very clean and comfy. We were sad we wouldn't have any time in Matsuyama as we were just passing through. It is famous for it's big onsen and the castle. Another ...

    Bathing at the oldest Onsen in Japan

    ... topped by a couple of statues. The structure had four fonts, and the water was 43 degrees C. It was hot!

    As was the case last time, I had to wash thoroughly before entering the water - again in the nude but I will spare you any more details. The Onsen is set up with mirrors at each individual sink, which has its own hand-held shower. The stools are about 4 inches from the floor, which makes sitting gracefully a bit of a challenge (for me anyway).
