Yakushima: Unspoilt

A visit to a tea farm nestled beside the Pacific Ocean and in view of a nearby island that serves as the base for the Japanese rocket program.

Then pajamas, cold Asahi, and local oranges.

A long afternoon reading, “Six Four,” a new Japanese detective novel, quite the sensation here.

Last night: Exquisite French dinner, ringside while watching chef, of small courses of local fish, vegetables, and beef.  So many vegetables, such good French wines.

This island is a hikers’ paradise.  Riddled with trails.  For now though it’s just quiet for us in the Balinese room we have at Sankara.
