The sea outside the window was so flat, a polished version of the turbulent sky above. The clouds hid the top of Sakurajima, the active volcano that overlooks Kagoshima. 

I have half an hour here at Ibusuki. Too little time to do much but soak my feet in the ashi-yu in front of the station. Then it’s a local train to Makurazaki. 

Have your say!
