We are staying the night at a hostel on the mainland near Miyajima Island. I stayed there last year and they remembered me and I am also staying in the same bed!
I have a small collection of dyed and printed fabrics now but have courired them off to a friend as it was getting heavy to carry with all the postcards and books I have acumulated. My son has also managed to collect a whole load of second hand Jazz CDs. Apparently Japan is the world centre of Jazz.
