Tuesday, 26° rain and more rain
After breakfast we took the train to Toba. It’s just a 10 minute ride to the trainstation and a few minutes walk to Mikimoto pearl island. There’s an exhibition of the pearl trade and harvesting and a demonstration of pearl divers. We also went on a 50-minute boat tour around a few of the small islands of Toba. We took the bus back to Futimunoura and got of at Ise Azuchi-Momoyama Bunka Mura, an historical theme park depicting the era of the Samurai. On top of the hill a large donjon allows visitors to view the area. We left the park when it started to rain even harder than it already did during the day and retired to our room.
