... to drink a raw egg. Once we finished eating, we checked out and got a ride back to town. Being on the efficient side, we had about 20 minutes before we needed to catch the ferry so we walked back to the Torii gate. The tide was way out and there were hoards of school kids out at the gate. It was still neat to see and we took a few pictures.
