Sakaiminato - the northernmost venue of our cruise in Japan. Scattered along the sidewalk are an amazing number of tiny bronze statues sitting atop rocks - not sure what they all represented but fun to check them out anyway. A quaint little Japanese fishing port with not a lot of touristy things to do so many of us simply disembarked the ship and strolled the main street. Amazing how tiny the streets are but then so are all vehicles - a little like box shaped cars, I guess because the parking spaces themselves are so tiny. Found a small seafood restaurant marked on our map, entered and sat down. I had a translation app on my phone so my first question was 'Prawns?' - shake of the head..... Next question 'what do you recommend?' followed by a point to the biggest picture of the manu card! Of course! OKay, we'll have one of those thank you. Turns out it was we think, a Crab specialty restaurant as that was seemingly the only dish most people had, and of course what we were served. Have to say though, the crab was fresh as, probably straight off the boat anchored across the road! But that was the total of our 'lunch' - enough to keep our hunger at bay anyway.
