Suigyuusha to Yufu Island
25-MAY-2003

Suigyuusha to Yufu Island

We took a water buffalo-drawn cart from Iriomote to Yufu Island, which has a botanical garden.

I found this video on YouTube which has a singer on one of these carts, playing a sanshin, and also shows the water buffalo carts crossing the straight. It does give a real sense of what the whole experience is like so I recommend watching it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7Xlt4BJ9Ns

What a beautiful little wagon, and what a wonderfully slow way to sight see.

What a fascinating shot. I always think of Japan as being so modern and urban. V

appealing transport, surely reliable, and seems it might well move at a reasonable pace for sight-seeing..
