From the Little Island

Filed under: Chuugoku, Domestic, Trips — Tags: , , — myyearinjapan @ 12:33 am

Our hotel during our trip to Yamaguchi was on a little island off the coast. It wasn’t too far off the coast. It was easily accessible by bridge. But before driving onto the island, we took a boat ride around the island to see the sights. The boat was quite shaky and most people were lulled to sleep by the rocking. We could barely hear the guide explaining what we were seeing. In the end, it was like paying $20 to take a nap. Near the end of the ride, my travel companions both woke up and looked out the window and said, “wow! that’s a big island!” They were looking at Honshu, the main Japanese island, but they thought they were seeing the little island we had just gone around. Try as I might to correct them, they didn’t believe me until we got into the port that they were actually looking at Honshu. These pictures are also looking out from the little island to Honshu.

Honshu

Honshu, the main island. The lights don't look that impressive, but I think it has more to do with the town on the other sode being small than the distance between the little isle and the main isle.

A couple of street lamps light up the water.There must be a bigger city over that mountain the the distance because it's spilling light pollution.
