This trip started with the usual "Let's go to the beach!!!!! Unfortunately, the hotel we are staying at has a different idea of a beach than we had. Another negative was we decided the day before in the bright sunshine and when Sunday hit, the weather changed to rain. But overall, it was a worthwhile trip to see the coast in the shorud of mist and fog and the magical top of the island with the shrines and piped in traditional Japanese music.
"Benten Sama shrine"
This was another gem, with all of the lush, verdant plantlife at the top of the island, this dragon slithered out to greet us.
What a view to wander across the bridge to the island then look back to the mainland.
