Tonight a serious as cyclone is scratching Japan’s belly.

I had planned to play it hard, camping in a shelter, but my friend Jona talked me out of it. Well, he said my tent would certainly suffer, that’s all I needed.

So I took his advice and for a room in a very modest ryokan. Best welcome ever.

And I took his and my friend Ash’s advice again and stocked up on booze and food too enjoy the show. I’m ready. Bring it on!

(My room with full table and view on my bike, and a close up on my table, with all my favorites foods angled the cyclone. Miom!)
