July is almost here! Shiraishi Island, Japan

Waiting for summer, out front of the Moooo! Bar, Shiraishi Island

It's still the rainy season in Japan but the good news is that the summer starts in July. So be sure to start making your summer plans now for visiting Shiraishi Island. We're back to full time blogging now and will help you uncover the treasures of the Seto Inland Sea!

First up, the International Villa is now being managed by Moyo Muya, a Tanzanian artist. He and his wife Ayumi have moved to the island and plan on making it their permanent home :) There couldn't be a better suited couple to take the reins of the International Villa! I visited the villa yesterday and it was absolutely sparkling clean and Moyo has done a great job with the maintenance. The villa books out quickly in the summertime, so contact shiraishireservations at yahoo dot com to get your reservation in!

Pilgrimage season is upon us!

We've had beautiful days on Shiraishi island for May and expect the good weather to continue into June. The Shiraishi Pilgrimage path is also in great shape, but won't be for much longer, I fear, as the rainy season is coming sometime in June when the weeds grow so fast, we won't be able to keep the entire 10km trail clear. But never fear, there are always some sections open for pilgrims and the intrepid can still make it around the whole route. The sooner the better, however!

Some recent photos from the Shiraishi Pilgrimage trail:
