Overview of today:
Today, I explore the arts: professional geisha dance in Shizuoka’s popular resort town of Atami, high art in the Museum of Art, and folk art with waterfalls of handmade little dolls of fabric. Early cherry blossoms struggle to hang on through a cold, rainy, windy day. My evening’s seaside ryokan is enhanced with handmade touches centering on scrumptious fish rendered both artistically and as fine cuisine.
