Greetings and Salutations,
Welcome to the next stage of my journey to Imabari, Japan to visit Masakazu Ikeda sensei in an effort to further develop my skill in and understanding of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture.
Today I posted the final images of my stay in Shin-Osaka and selected images taken during my train journey from Shin-Osaka to Imabari.

The journey entailed a quick blast on the 'Shinkansen' to Okayama and a more leisurely ride aboard the 'Shiokaze' from Okayama to Imabari.
The further we travelled from Osaka the more my language limitations became evident as all signs and announcements aboard the 'Shiokaze' were in Japanese only.
Fortunately for me I was able to recognize the names of the cities as we traveled over the massive and incredibly impressive bridge from the main island of Honshu to the home of Ikeda sensei on the smaller island of Shikoku.
I hope the images provide you with some pertinent insights into this fascinating journey.
