... of space.... and that was before we found out Yumi's husband was the architect. The living room (where we slept) was a tatami room with sliding doors. Patio doors in that room and the dining / play area gave a feeling of space and looked on to a small yard with vegetables, flowers, trees and a huge rock face giving privacy to the home.

We hurried down the hill, genuinely looking forward to seeing the greatest shrine in the land. I can only imagine this was a similar thrill to that Indiana Jones experienced on finding ...

Highlights were the whole fish (not something we normally are too keen on, but this one was amazing!), and the tuna sashimi! Breakfast the next morning was equally decadent. A great experience!


The next morning, we were on the early bus out to Shingu on the east coast of the peninsula. On the agenda today was ...
