Typhoon #2: Vanfong Causes a Major Route Change

This is heading for southern Japan. Which is where I am at the moment. My route was supposed to take me through the southern part of the island of Shikoku. Which is where Vanfong will hit land, exactly when I was supposed to be riding. I took the train to the art island of Naoshima and met Alison for a few days. Then to Okayama to sit out the storm before resuming the ride schedule on Kyushu. 

I was able to squeeze one nice ride on on northern Shikoku. Shikoku being famous for its Route of 88 Temples.  Many people do the entire circuit, either walking (takes about 3 months), cycling (I met a couple doing that, they said it would take a month), or as this group did, by tour bus.

Alison on Naoshima. 

Naoshima is a truly unbelievable place for art junkies. I’ve never seen such a commitment made to contemporary art. Definitely a must visit place for the art lover.
