￥1500 at the door
From Hiroshima, take the JR Sanyo Line east (usually departs from track 4 or 5) for exactly 35 minutes local, 32 minutes rapid to Saijou (西条). Walk straight ahead for 5,6 minutes.
Dragon Boat Festival (ドラゴンボートフェスティバル)

Nejime Town (根占町), Osumi Pennisula
Start swimming. I believe there is only one bus that travels into south Osumi.
I am off to America this week for a wedding; make sure Satsuma can survive without me. Tokyo seems to have torn itself apart in my 10-month absence.
