J Day + 21, 22, 23 and 24....

We are now back near Kagoshima and have been amusing ourselves with walks along the beach, the Tokku or Kamikaze museum at Chiran and the city, whilst Tom has been working. There are lots of photographs and stories to tell, but they will probably have to wait until we get back to the UK towards the end of next week. As many others have commented, sometimes real life gets in the way of  blogging which is exactly how it should be! 

A couple of days were blurred out with a migraine, but this has thankfully now passed and we as I type we are driving north of Kagoshima to climb Mt Kirishima. The weather is brighter than it has been for a few days.

Sakurajima is performing again today. In fact it performs most days and when we were in the city on Thursday we came home feeling decidedly gritty and dirty, as the wind direction was blowing the fall out over the city.

Just in case you think that food in Japan is all about sushi and sashimi, or that I might be fading away, then check this out...










No, I didn't eat it all myself! Tom needed a session on the bike to work it all off ;0)

  1. The food looks wonderful, especially the burger. It wasn't Kobe beef was it? If it was I think you'd need to be applying for a loan!

    1. Don't think so as the price seemed very reasonable. Perhaps Kobe beef is too expensive to grind up and put in a burger!

  2. Wow so much food and those desserts, yum yum. Sorry about the migraine, I used to get them but (touchwood), I have not had one for many years. Enjoy the rest of the holiday. Diane

  3. Looks delicious. Wouldn't know which dish to choose. Although I think the Danone yogurt stands out like a sore thumb :). Enjoy the rest of your holiday. Looking forward to more photos.
