I leave Hiraizumi and thanks to the fast trains they have here in
I get on the next train travelling towards
But in reality I am not really up for much sightseeing today - the climate has change remarkably during my train ride. I left this morning in decent weather - nice and sunny with a low humidity. But now it is still sunny with a high humidity - which make the city a bit of a challenge for my sightseeing ambitions.
After hanging around for a while I figure I might as well get out and have a look around. I walk down towards the castle in the city - which is also the neighbor of the Achi Perfectual Gymnasium. Where I want to go early tomorrow morning - hence I use this sightseeing trip as a bit of a orientation tour for my early morning adventures tomorrow. Outside of the gymnasium are a long line of taxis waiting for costumers - there are none around but at six the sumo tournaments will end for the day and lots of people will be swarming out to catch a taxi. And sure at six people come out in huge numbers and the taxis get busy. I leave and go to have a look at a nearby temple where the lights in the many lamps have been turned on creating a special effect here in the early evening.
