Okayama, waiting for Vonfong to pass

Takashimaya department store is the Neiman-Marcus of Japan. The rain was playing music on their sign.  (Listen to the pings behind the rain)


Here’s a few more shots from Naoshima




At a street faire before the rain hit in Okayama.  These are bean paste sweets. 

Many of the older homes have burnt walls. It’s to protect the wood from a certain bug infestation. 


This is looking out our hotel window while waiting for the  storm to pass


These bikes outside my hotel didn’t stand up to the winds

  1. Love the Naoshima shots. The glass steps, large stones & those burnt walls – gorgeous! Of course it is great to see Alison in her aesthetic epicenter! Stay dry! Ride on!


  2. Welcome to Kyushu ! You’re making good progress !
    And good to hear you survived Vonfong.
    The tandem family is now near Nagano, you’re staying way ahead 😉
