Hashikami Town

This blog is long coming.... I took these on August 10th in Hashikami Town. When I arrived I was greeted by an interesting group of JR Train Executives. I eventually found the Town Hall which led me with an encounter with Hiroko, the unofficial Mayor Of Hashikami town who knew everyone. She also was the town Barber, Dance Teacher, and All around center of the Universe. When she met me she took an instantly to me and invited me to stay at her home; she fed me and entertained me with experiences of other travelers and her visit to the United States. Below are a few pictures from Hashikami Town. I also witnessed first hand a Girls Basketball Team who could give any NBA Team a run for their money based on their practice. Their school was not even 100 Yards away from the ocean perched on a Cliff. While they were scared by the crashing of the waves. The school was unscathed and no child or school Teacher or employee was harmed.
