Seto Inland Sea, Japan

We departed Kobe at 5:00 am on Wednesday to travel some 400 miles to Nagasaki to avoid Typhoon Wipha which was about to wreak havoc in the Tokyo area and which would affect travel on the North Pacific Ocean near Kobe.   We sailed through the Seto Inland Sea exiting it to the West in the evening and sailed around to Nagasaki arriving 8:00 am Thursday. The entire area of the Inland sea from Kobe to the end is a National Park.  However, it is a major shipping route and there is industrial activity along its length.  It’s many hundreds of islands used to be reachable only by ferries but now, they are linked by beautiful bridges.
