Day 48: Tosashimizu (Kochi) – Iyo (Ehime) 209km

Our friend had to work today, so he was up early (and as a result, so were we).  We’d stayed up late catching up, so waking was harder…

Day 47: Tosashimizu (Kochi)

The weather here has been so variable, from heavy tropical rain storms, then bright blue skies 15 minutes later. Our friend took us to his local beach, Ohki-hama,…

Day 27: Shirakawa (Gifu) – Kanazawa (Ishikawa) 121km

Another stormy-night/rainy-morning that cleared by the time we’d finished breakfast.  Convenient! As we were finishing breakfast, Risa started chatting to an old lady working at the michi-no-eki, and…
