With the arrival of family members from the US, we visited a seaside city previously known as “Japan’s Wall Street,” or so I’m told. Thankful for a beautiful day, we went up one of the surrounding mountains by cable car; the view of the underlying city and harbor with surrounding mountains in the midst of fall’s orange foliage was spectacular. Did I mention the beautiful weather?
Afterwards, we went down to the seaside and visited an old fishermen’s dormitory next to a lighthouse. We even got to play dress up in old fishermen/women’s costumes. The view from the lighthouse, while different to the mountains earlier, was equally beautiful, especially in the setting of watching the sun set.
