Today was going to be a demanding 45 km day. The weather was clear, bright and warm. Spring is here! The smell of the mountain flowers was hanging in the air whenever we passed close to land. In Himedo town, we passed Uryuuzaki, which sports the best-looking cliffs in Amakusa. If you look closely you will understand why we have started sea kayaking- the rock is fairly rotten and unsuitable for rock climbing.
