... trail had many signs pointing the correct direction and maps outlying the route. It also confirmed that getting a bus at Hatajuku was the best plan. Although almost an hour had passed, I was surprised when we soon arrived at the Amazake Chaya (tea house). Will had recently awoken as I had slipped and jolted him from his nap.

... we could walk at a normal pace. We climbed the stairs to the main shrine dedicated to one of the goddesses of the sea. We continued to meander the path climbing up and down stairs past statues, gardens and additional shrines. At the top of the island, we stopped for a beer for Mike while Will ran around a grassy area. A street performer balanced on a wobbly tower much to Will's delight. We took in the beautiful views although it wasn't quite clear enough to ...
