Yeosu was the host city for the 2012 World Expo.

I saw Jinnamgwan by day and night : Korea's largest single-storey wooden pavillion.

And I walked around the harbor, between bridges, islands, and parks.

Nice small harbor, Tongyeong was quite relaxing.

I took a cable car to reach the top of a mountain and hike down.

After a night in the ferry, I'm back to the country of the calm morning. I stayed longer than expected to have a chest x-ray and wait for the result. No worries, it was just a formality to have the visa of my next country.

So I enjoy my time eating and visit a little what I misses last time.

My lats stop in Japan : Beppu. It's a small town in Kyushu full of Onsen (Hot spring).

It looks like the city is smoking :

I tried those hot waters in the public bath twice. It's extremely hot, the girl in front of me had a red line on the top of her back! So did I, I guess...

I visited the 8 hells. 8 hot springs that cannot be used.
