A Visit to Sumoto

8 Dec

A few months ago we stopped by Sumoto to visit the missionaries in that zone on their preparation day.  Earlier in the day they barbequed with members of the branch and we arrived just in time for a fun game of beach volleyball.

A beautiful little port below and one of our beautiful Mongolian sister missionaries above.

A passer-by decided to stop  and watch the game.  He was invited to join but wanted only to watch.

Some fun in the water on a hot day. (This wasn’t the missionaries!)

These little girls rode up on their bicycles, hopped off, ran down to the water to play for a few minutes and then back on their bikes to continue their journey.

A relaxing afternoon of fishing for this couple.

By the end of our day at the beach this boat had arrived at the port.

On our walk back to the branch we passed these statues that were outside the walls of a kindergarten.

We also walked past this beautiful restaurant front.

A man tending to his plants in the middle of the day in his underwear!  Not an uncommon sight.

These little girls were so excited to see Americans!

Manhole covers are an art here in Japan.

A beautiful castle that could be seen from the beach in the distance.

Sumoto is on the island of Awaji that you cross from the main island of Honshu to one of the other four islands called Shikoku.  There is a wonderful little growing branch there.  It is beautiful!
