A SIGHTSEEING TOUR IN IZU PENINSULA

                    We went to Jogasaki seashore at first. It is located at Ito city.


                                 最初は、伊東市の 城ヵ崎海岸に行きました。



Jogasaki seashore.



We could see Izu-Oshima island. Mt.Mihara was covered with snow.

There is Kadowaki suspension bridge here.
This bridge is surrounded by lava rocks.

門脇吊り橋です。 まわりは、すべて溶岩です。

a little bit fearful to walk across this bridge.

渡るのは、少し怖いです。



Then we went to south Izu area.


The color of the ocean is very beautiful.

We stayed this hotel.

富岳群青という、8部屋だけのホテルです。


There is a open air hot spring bath just next to a indoor bathroom.

露天風呂からは富士山が見えるはずでした。

  1. 広い菜の花畑を見ると暖かい春をかんじますが、三原山の雪は、あれっと思ってしまいます。春が待ち遠しい今日この頃です。この椿の花弁は、とてもかわいいですね。土地柄、あんこ椿は、片便り~なんて歌を思い出しました。
    Have a nice day!

  5. Dearest Minoru-san;
    Wow, wonderful seasonal pictures in IZU PENINSULA♡♡♡ The bridge sure seems a bit scary to walk across p;) I LOVED to see these beautiful flowers; especially the rape blossom (I saw them yesterday while in my husband car shopping) reminds me equinoctial week is coming close.
    Happy for your marvelous trip☆☆☆

  7. また素敵な旅に行かれましたね。お花のアップ写真、いつもながら上手にとれていてうらやましいです。(私はふつうのデジカメしか使えないので、こんなふうに撮れないんです。)菜の花も「え、こんなに繊細な花だったの?」って再発見でした。
    ホテルもすばらしそうですね。富士山をみながら露天風呂につかると気持ちいいでしょうね。(^^)
