Dedication: Bailey is an American sailor stationed in Kyushu. We met while he was on shore leave in Tokyo and had fun exploring the city together. We found – thanks to Min – a really fun izakaya in Shinjuku that had a dice game you could play to double your drink, or double the cost. There the staff went crazy for us: I got a free umbrella from a waiter and some Beatles renditions sung at me.
Picture: yes, I burnt my noggin
I have to backtrack a few hours today and then make some of the ascent up the first big mountain. Looks like rain later.
