Ohara Museum to Matsuyama

Kurashiki to Matsuyama
Another 6am wakeup call in Kurashiki. I have to admit despite the smaller size, samller rooms, real metal keys, the Kurashiki Kokusai rannks pretty high with me beccause they have INTERNET!!! Picure and posts from Kyoto were done in Kurashiki...
Well, I knew sooner or later someone would forget something. The LAST person I would expect to forget his uniform left if in the closet in Tokyo, hmmm who might that be???
Buffet breakfast in Kurashiki was a mix of Japanese and American style, no rice though. After 5 days of breakfast with rice this was actually kinda nice. Not having to worry about where to eat breakfast was even nicer.
It was then off on a walking tour of old town kurashiki. Kurashiki is an old town that a lot of rich people used to live in. Many of the old buildings lining the canal were storage houses for rice. Now they are souvenir shops and restaurants. One of Kurashiki's main attractions is the Ohara Museum of Art. Our tour included admission and we were amazed by the number of impressionist pieces done by some very well know artists.. . Chagall,

After the museum tour we shopped for omiyage. As I was walking back from buying a cool drink at one of the countless vending machines a merchant came running out of his shop yelling at our group up ahead. At first I thought someone forget his change, (last trip Don said one merchant was yelling at one of the Scouts when he told him to keep the change and turned around to leave. The clerk didn't want his boss to think he was stealing from the customers) It turned out that one of the scouts left his camera in the store... probably the same scout who forgot the uniform in Tokyo...

After shopping it was back to the hotel to collect our luggage and hoof it back to the train station for buffet lunch and a 3 hour train ride to Matsuyama...

Oh no! Looks like maybe some poor scout forgot? That uniform looks a little big on one scout and those pants look awfully new in the Hiroshima pictures with no neckerchief!

Hopefully the uniform caught up with the scout!
