Rain. Pouring rain. Heavy clouds all across the sky. Staggeringly awful humidity. Hiking or any sort of outdoor activity is out of the question. I’m really disappointed…but I’m feeling relaxed, too. I may go to Shimabara for a few hours and then double back to Unzen in time to check into my ryokan, because there really isn’t much to do in Unzen. A trip to the onsen sounds <i>fantastic</i> right now.
