For about 6 weeks in early spring, the Tokaikisen jetfoil runs a seasonal service from Tateyama to Oshima for the annual camellia festival. Tod and I have wanted to make the trip for seven years, but this year I finally did it. But without Tod.
This morning, Naomi, Fujii-san, and I hopped on board the boat and enjoyed a day on the island. And we were back home in time to feed the cats.
Next year, I’m going to take Tod and maybe we’ll stay overnight so we can take our time. Oshima is a nice break from home.
