After all that food at the onsen, we really needed a walk. Luckily, the onsen had that covered too – the next morning we joined their free guided walk down to the Jogasaki Coast.
The first part of the walk was by a fast-flowing river that ran through some spectacular forest.
It was a temperate rainforest, and there were plenty of details to take in.
We even saw a lovely-looking spider. These guys aren’t deadly, but they do make you pretty sick. Luckily they are pretty tame, unlike some of its Aussie relatives.
We followed the river until it tumbled into the sea.
And then, what did we find?
