The Iya valley is sold in the guidebooks as undiscovered hidden Back to nature Japan. So I was ready for a rushing river and long hikes. And then there is the famous vine bridge crossing the Iya river, a feat of old timey engineering. But I should have remembered that in Japan , if there is something cool to see there is definitely going to be bus parking. So, I stayed in a little guesthouse ,Kel Na Sob, perched ...

I can hear you hikers n climbers frown.. like its nothing. But it sure felt like something to me. Arthur's seat in Edinburgh ...
... coffee in a seriously old-fashioned thing. It squeaked and bubbled like a whole science lab. But the coffee was goooood! And pretty cheap for Japan, where a cuppa usually costs more than twice the price of a beer! All jacked up on the black medicine I strolled along the river and then along the main road which is lined with palm trees and leads to mount Bizan. I was amazed over how quiet it was. Calm. So unlike other Japanese cities I been to. I aimlessly walked around and ...
