day 267 - Kinosaki and Takeno
Finding our way around Kinosaki.
Along the canal.
This nice lady told us she was "hachi ju nana sai" (87 years old.) She gave Lyn an origami crane (but insisted she take off her shopkeeper's apron before allowing "shasin" - a photo!).
Yesterday and today we travelled north from Himeji to the opposite coast of Honshu on the Sea of Japan. The beautiful onsen town of Kinosaki is on a canal, with 7 public onsen all within walking distance of each other.
