Yesterday was our first day off. But Lozi kept on working of course, as he had to drive us from Beppu to Awagishima. So we got up at 9 (the ostukaresama party with the great beppu staff finished around 4 in the morning) , went to a very popular onsen (old men, one with one arm missing, one yakusa with his son...) , and then went to the ferry for Shikoku. We had a great nap on the upper outside deck , and all woke up at the same moment when the boat started to move differently, just in time for us to enjoy the wonderful view ( it reminded annecy to davide ) as we approached the island. Then we drove through the mountains, and stopped after a few hours to enjoy the beach. A perfect sunset moment, ideal time for a MEC photo shooting. We arrived at 11 this morning, after a long long drive (we stopped for a few hours at a Lawson combini) because Lozi needed a DESERVED nap. Good job Lozi-san!
