Back From Shikoku


So we're back home from the trip. All in all it was a good trip, bright and sunny the first day, partly cloudy on day two and three, then day four, five and six brought steadily worsening weather. The rain is nice for a while, riding through forests and pine trees, where it creates magnificent mists and the comfortable rainy-forest smell, but rain in the city is nothing fun. We ended up taking a train for part of the trip toward the end, and actually cutting it a bit short, opting to spend half of one day in a hot-bath spa rather than ride through the rain.

I'll be adding a bit of a day-by-day account later, for now I'll just post some of the photos I took. I am utterly disappointed in my photos from this trip. While some of the things we saw, especially on day two and three, were some of the most magnificent I have seen since in Japan, in the interest of making progress, I didn't stop as often as I would have liked to take pictures. The result of this restraint are less than 300 photos from the whole week, most of which are boring landscapes. Still, I think it is worth showing just to give an idea of what Shikoku looks like.
