After that it was down to the harbour for a beer while ...
... a package of it for 600 Yen-about $6.00 US), re-boarded the bus -wet and tired - and made our way back to the ship. Our tiny and very enthusiastic guide sang to us, told a Japanese folktale and kept up a steady patter of facts and opinions about this part of Japan.
Back on board, looking like drowned rats, we showered and dressed. Dinner companions included an interesting man (Carl) who was born in 1941 in Hamburg, Germany and somehow survived the almost ...
