Rishiri, Japan................


Arriving early morning in Rishiri

Remote island 20K off the northern tip of Hokkaido. Mt. Rishiri is a dormant volcano. 6000 inhabitants who make a living from tourism and fishing for sea vegetables as the herring has been fished out.


Preparing huge scallops.


Ice cream always delicious in any country!


Our ship the Caledonian Sky docked beneath the volcano.


Internet sporadic now we are sailing through the Russian Kuril Islands - so remote here.
Hope to be able to share more of this adventure soon - including my Zodiac boat scare of yesterday!
