A Travellerspoint blog

Photos, We've Got Photos!

And we know we're WAY behind!

The last several days have been really travel/tourist intensive. So we've fallen woefully behind in our blog. We've gone through 3 prefectures: Hiroshima, Wakayama, and Okayama, up and down mountains, and to the sea. We're gonna need a vacation just to recover from our vacation! In the interests of getting something up on the blog--especially for those of you who aren't on Facebook, here are some pictorial highlights.

DSCN1586.jpg Futons laid out in our ryokan room. They were as comfy as they look. The big problem was that the room was ALWAYS cold!
