    ... to a photo stop of Engetsu-to Island to catch the sunset through the hole eroded in the centre.
    Back home we all settled in to our roles. Kids did their homework before playing with us. Yumi worked away on dinner (took me a couple of days before she'd let me help) and Hiraoki came home from work. Our evenings were very pleasant with all of us going to bed early.
    Now back to the Kumano Kodo. Yumi drove us to Takijiri-oji where we began ...

This initial appetizer is meant to be eaten whole (even the head), but we elected to leave the heads and ...

    ... creating a magnificent view. We are excited to experience this tomorrow morning.
    After checking in we enjoyed the onsen (hot springs bath) again, to wash away the perspiration and dirt from the hike. This will be our ritual for the next two days, followed by great relaxing time in the lodge, enjoying the warm hospitality of the lodge owners and staff in these remote mountain towns. We are excited to participate in this uniquely Japanese ...

    ... several hills covered with forests (nothing is a proper mountain anymore after Nepal). It's particularly nice because the path is dotted with over 100 small shrines which we used to measure our progress - although technically I think we were meant to pray or perform some kind of ritual at each one.
