Yes, I’m being super generous tonight and giving you some extra photos to look at! Well, seeing as I hit the 6,000 mark today, the least I can do is share a little. 😉
Today I arrived in Kamaishi (釜石) (Iwate Prefecture) on the Sanriku Coast. Kamaishi is not really a tourist spot, but the coastline is stunning. I visited the Dai-Kannon statue today, partly because I love big Buddha statues, and also because I heard there was going to be a small Shishi Odori (deer dance) festival. The festival takes place on the first Sunday of June every year, so I was really lucky to be able to see it today!
