Day 66: Kushima to Minami Osumi

Saturday, August 29, 2009
  Biked 70km (43 miles) from Kushima to Minami Osumi with our cycling buddy Saito-san.  Stopped at the Kanoya Air Base Museum, which includes a collection of photos of the 800+ kamikaze pilots who took off from Kanoya during WW II.  The collection of final farewell letters to their families is moving and a sad reminder of the insanity of war.
