Todays bus ride is a long one and we visit many beautiful sights. First we make a stop at the 100 Stepped garden. It is located on the grounds of a huge hotel. The final group of photos in this section is of a brand new rest stop on the highway, It had everything from great goodies to eat to a talking robot to assist you. For our accommodations tonight we stay at traditional Japanese ryokan. After checking in we walk 800 steps to a wonderful shrine on the hill above our ryokan. It is mostly shaded and well worth the walk.
