It was a rainy Monday, galleries on Naoshima were closed for the day, so we opted for Ogishima. This was low season, a couple of weeks before Golden Week so yes, not much was open. If not for the sustaining plain soba served at the info centre we would have been hungry indeed! However, even in the rain, the walks around the charming hilly village and out to the lighthouse were delightful. I also slogged up to the lookout and was rewarded with a magnificent stormy view over the Seto sea. Sometimes the not so picture perfect days produce the most memorable experiences.
