Kiyotaki River

The peace and serenity of the ryokan was more than Stan and Lisa could bear. After breakfast, they head back to Kyoto for some more frenetic shopping on their last day in Japan.

The ryokan is located on the banks of the Kyotaki River. Sigrid and I were upgraded to a larger room (still with an individual outside bath) on the side facing the river. After a breakfast and exploring the grounds, Sigrid spends most of the day relaxing, soaking in the hot tub and enjoying the scenery. I find a well marked trail along the river, and took an extended four hour hike. Some snaps and video along the way...

how did popeile(?) fishing rod work last year!

this pole looks like it needs to fish in calm water with a worm. by the way is it missing the little line loop on the top? really wishing you had at least caught one the size you had for dinner that night.

I think you are right about this rod. The next attempt will be through a hole in the ice at Shag Lake.
