... took a while to get there between the train and the bus, and the boat tours have clearly got a bit of a racket going, but they are very impressive. When we went the water was very choppy, so we saw some huge swirls in the water, and though they perhaps weren't the traditional perfect whirlpool shape, it was all very exciting being on a boat in the middle of it all.

... did not have the same help. An evening with local young people busking, with balmy weather was great and we went for drinks and food later which rounded up a good day.
The final day here was uneventful, I had planned to go and catch a puppet show, but I had written down the time the bus gets to the theatre and not leaves. Missing the buss by 10min was frustrating, but meant that I had an easy morning walking around the many cherry blossoms in town absorbing the sun and eating ice ...

Next stop Kotohira and a ryokan ...

As a result, I arrived at the check-in counter at 7:23, two minutes before the check-in counter was closed. It was a close call and I learned that I should be very careful of time when I travel in the areas which I am not familiar with even in Japan. (Come to think of it, I did a similar thing in Hong Kong as well....)
