During June and July, hydrangea (アジサイ in Japanese) bloom all over Japan.
These are the three last pictures from my Shimonoseki day trip.
A little known fact about Shimonoseki is that it is the fugu, also know as the pufferfish, capital of the world.
While exploring the side-streets of Shimonoseki, along the water, we stopped for a rest near this fisherman.
This crane stood perfectly still for about five full minutes while I pondered whether or not to go up and snap a shot of him.
Before departing for Ganryūjima famed for it’s legendary samurai duel, Bill, Lori, and I were able to view this lighthouse called Lover’s Lighthouse.
Statues on Ganryūjima portraying the epic duel to the death in 1612 between Musashi and Kojiro.
A remake of the boat Musashi rode to Ganryūjima.
