71ml. A few days off at the Cape due to having vertigo again and feeling dizzy. Had a great time. On Sunday it was the fish festival and the night before I was invited to join a group of Japanese friends who gave me food and drink. I can’t remember their names but great people, I even met the mayor and was given crab and oysters. There was a crab speed eating contest at the fish festival which was really good to watch and a young woman won. Everyone there was given a free pass for the onsen neat the campground.
I did this route over 2 days due to the late start, so I rode 26ml to Akkeshi 1st, a great site for ¥210 and from there the next day I took the R14 up to the R1128 and then some unnumbered quiet roads over to lake Toro. I was heading to lake Akan today but after visiting the fantastic shibecha museum, opposite the lake Toro visitor center about the wetlands history and wildlife, I only have enough time to get to Tsurui, the 2nd time I’ve stayed here now. Oh and I passed a viewing observatory for one of the wetlands views so I climbed the steps for a few photos.
