We sailed this morning past interesting looking islands, under the world’s longest suspension bridge and arrived in Tomanoura by late morning.
This small, old fishing village is most noticeable as the harbor town on which the anime film Ponyo was based, According to Wiki (among other places) if you look closely as you wander through town, you can find indications of the little fish girl.
Me? I was just delighted to ride the tender in and wander streets before walking along the sea wall and a bit up and down hill. I saw but skipped entering anything that looked like a temple, instead enjoying the view of various fishing/sailing vessels, the island directly across, and the old light house.
my personal bit of smile came from outside a small tea shop –
After a few hours, I wandered back to the tender meeting point. There were only two of us on the trip back to the ship. But I actually got off the tender (unlike some ports where I will ride the tender in and back simply to get a picture of the cruise ship at anchor.
The ship sailed back out headed for a sea day around 1900.
