第8回 A Short Trip to Naoshima
A Short Trip to Naoshima
I took a short trip to Naoshima with two of my friends. They are from Russia and one of them hasn’t been to Naoshima before. We woke up very early to catch the first ferry to the island. There were many people waiting there and the ferry was almost full! We decided to ride on the top of the ferry. At first, it was so hot! But, when the boat started moving, there was a very nice breeze from the ocean. It was nice to see the natural beauty of the sea and look at the other islands as we traveled to Naoshima.
When we arrived on the island, we decided to rent mountain bikes. We then rode our bikes to 7-11 and got some sandwiches and drinks for lunch. After that, we rode for about 20 minuets until we found a really nice beach. We decided it was a good idea to go swimming! We changed into our swimming clothes and ran into the water. The water was perfect! There were some other people swimming with us and some of them talked to us. They asked us which country we were from, where do we live and other questions. It was nice to make new friends and meet new people.
Before we left, we took some pictures together with our new friends and then rode our bikes back to the ferry port. We still had some time before the next ferry back to Takamatsu left, so we returned our bikes and then found a cool café near a bath house. The café served a mix of Japanese and Western style food. I ordered a root beer (a kind of soft drink from America) and my friends ordered ice coffee.
After relaxing at the café for a little while, we got back on the ferry and returned to Takamatsu. Everyone was tired from swimming and being out in the hot sun so we slept for most of the trip.
Have you ever been to Naoshima? It’s a great way to spend a day and enjoy the natural beauty of Japan. Especially, now there is a big art event happening so the atmosphere around the island is very fun. There are many people from other countries there as well. If you have time, I think you should really try to visit Naoshima sometime too! Who knows? You might see me riding a mountain bike or swimming in the ocean!
