A trip to Murusugi onsen - part 6
After sampling the delights of the Tofu shop Kawauchi san and I parted company because unlike me he did not bring any lunch with him and wanted to head off to a local restaurant so I took a new road that I had not explored before and headed back towards Niigata city. The new road I took was very nice with no cars at all which then opened out onto the plains of Niigata which is now a magnificent green owing to the fact the rice is now growing. I arrived home around 2.30pm and in total I did about 60km which was a nice ride and I was lucky to have such fine weather.
The photos above show the Humber on the road home and a view across the rice fields looking towards the Mt Gozu range.
