Megijima and Ogijima

Today's pictures will have to wait for another post as I don't have my computer.  This morning we visited two nearby islands, Megijima and Ogijma.  The first was apparently the home to demons from a familiar Japanese children's story, Momotaru.  We hiked up to the highest point where some of the group went into the demons' cave and we ventured to the top for a 360 degree view of the Seto Sea.

We hadn't planned to go to the other island but heard that it was one of Japan's cat islands.  So we got back on the ferry to check it out.  We were only able to be there for 20 minutes because the next ferry would not be leaving for another two and a half hours, but in that short time we did encounter a group of cats.  Or rather, they brought themselves out of their collective isolation to join together in hopes of getting food from us.  They were a cute and pleasant bunch.

Tonight is our last performance of Figaro, and then back to Takarazuka tomorrow for a few days of rest.
