Kurashki, an Onsen, and an imminent departure

We docked in Uno early this morning and took a tour to Kurashiki, specifically the Bihan District, which is the old merchant quarter. There are still many merchants there, but there were also temples, shrines, museums, and a chance to relax and decompress.

In the afternoon, we visited an onsen (hot springs) near the ship, along with about 20 others from the ship. It was a very pleasant and relaxing experience; I could have used another hour there! No photos from inside, of course, but here’s the exterior.

The islands and bays on this trip have been nothing short of wonderful; we took a couple of minutes to enjoy them this afternoon.

Time for our farewell dinner, and then it’s time to pack. Onward!
