Jogashima Todai

The next tour stop was Jogashima todai (lighthouse). The views from the top of the hill where the lighthouse was perched were well worth the 90 steep steps we had to climb to get to the top! Only 5 of us ventured up.

We climbed down the other side to the rocky beach, again it was all just so beautiful.

My tootsies in the Pacific!

A small shrine in a cave below the lighthouse.

My yummy lunch! Fried tuna and a jumbo shrimp. The big, covered bowl is rice. The small bowl nearest the plate is raw tuna balls marinated in some kind of sauce (yes, I ate it!!!!)

Mixed in with the pictures from Jogashima below is a picture of our cutie patootie tour guide, Yamada. It was his first day on the job. And a pic of a Japanese-style toilet, a squatty potty (for those of you who've never seen one).
