I walked with OS-san from the tsuyadou.
Some pretty flowers which were on the roadside. They look a it washed out from the camera flash, though…
Today’s mountain path!
Took a break with OS-san
The view from the peak at a height of about 500 meters.
After descending from the mountain, a lady working amongst the mandarin trees gave us each 3 mandarins as settai. Tasty!
Back to road.
Uwajima City, Tsushima Town
Shinbashi ryokan in Tsushima Town
I bought an apple from a shop about 1 minute walk from the ryokan, and after talking to the lady in the shop and a local, the local lady presented me with 3 mandarins. Another hit of vitamin C!
Later, when I was watching TV in the ryokan, an elderly man also staying the night who I greeted earlier knocked on the door then gave me a banana and a sports drink.
My fruit-life is starting to get surprisingly fulfilling! lol
