Dan’s mentioned the unbelievable Katsu lunch during our layover in Okayama. Definitely worth the 10 min walk from the train! And we were starving… So in the red zone at that point that Dan was flustered by children and we had trouble operating the coin slot machine to order our lunch! (Photo of Dan at the canal in Okayama)
Great fun running into the Matsuri dancers at the Okayama train station. I loved their costumes!
The train across the Seto Ohashi bridge was breathtaking. But I am happy we will not be on it again as I suffered from severe vertigo. Upon arrival in Takamatsu we went right to the info desk to get our passports for the 2013 Setouchi art festival. Taxi then to our apartment which is totally adorable, conveniently located and the first opportunity to drop off our packs!
Jet lag makes you really hungry and stupid in the evening. We walked all the way to the pier for a fish place we heard was amazing only to be bamboozled by closure for a wedding… Then we walked all the way back to the arcade looking for a good izakaya. Found a small one full of locals… evidence of the astonishingly good shishamo below! We were passed out in bed by 9:30 after that adventure.
