Flag of Japan  , Kyushu-Okinawa,
Friday, November 26, 2010

Our next and final destination is Hakata, where we have to get our ferry to South Korea from.  Fortunately there is also a Sumo tournament going on and we are there for the last two days of it so we headed to the Sumo to watch some HUGE men in nappies launch at each other...very odd "sport" but wonderfully traditional and kept us mesmerized for a few hours!
 
Some highlights from Japan include; the safety, the cleanliness - they even scrub Tokyo subway floors!The toilets with all the functions - heated seat, music to play, etc - kindness of everyone, bowing to everyone even if you have no idea what is going on!

The weather has been nice and now we are preparing for the cold leg of our journey, think we might have to stock up on some woollies!

So our last night in Japan and we have finally written our first blog.  Next stop on the Ellie and Emily train, South Korea.
