... it isn’t very readily available for consumption in Japan, except in locations that are close to an active fish market, as exists in Katsura.
Our hotel for the evening sits on its own island, a short 10 minute boat ride away from the main town, on boats shaped like orcas, turtles and other sea creatures — all very cute!

After the long climb, we passed through the usual village of tourist shops and then arrived at the amazing ...

... piled onto our train and stood in the aisles. One of the mother’s kids kept looking at us and saying, "shimata!" in the cutest voice I have ever heard.
