When I went to Shimoda for shopping with my son, I went to "Shimoda Park" to check the blooming of Hydrangea, "Ajisai" in Japanese.
The flowers has just started to bloom, but we could see some flowers there.
They says that there are 3 million flowers of Hydragea in this park, and we can walk in a lot of flowers with a view of Shimoda town and harbor at the peak of blooming season.
When I was watching TV news today I found the scene of my home town "Miyazaki".
It was more than 35 degrees in Miyazaki city, that’s why the TV news informed it.
Here in Shirahama it was also very hot !!
It was seemed like a real summer.
There were some peoples who were swimming in the sea.
When we went to fish shop near Shirahama shirine we went to the beach behind this shrine.
There is a small path to the beach from shirine’s parking lot, and we can get to the beach by walking.
At around 2:00 pm it was low tide in Shirahama, so we could walk under the rocks which has a red gate "Torii"….
When I came back to Sakuraya from Shimoda after shopping I took this picture on the way to the hill where Sakuraya located from Route 135.
Today there was no clouds in the sky, so it was very hot and the sun was shining like a summer.
That’s why we could see a real blue on the ocean.
It is only 3 or 4 hours from Tokyo to get this ocean !!
Last night Yuuki’s grandparents stayed at Sakuraya.
After saying "Good bye" my son, Yuuki said, "Let’s go walking !!"
So my wife and I took my son to walk to the mountain behind Sakuraya.
There is a small street in front of Sakuraya and we can go up the hill on this street…..
When I went to Shimoda for shopping I took this picture at Itami port in Shirahama.
Threre is a small beach and many ships in this port.
It was very hot today, and the sun was shinning like a summer.
What a beautiful sea, isn’t it ?
We got a letter from our guests who stayed at Sakuraya in last May.
They came to Japan from Singapore for the 1st time, arrived at Kansai Airport and came to Shimoda after Kyoto, Takayama, Mt. Fuji, Hakone and Tokyo.
As they don’t speak Japanese well it was a little difficult to travel in the country side of Japan…..
The busy Golden Week was finished this morning and Sakuraya became quite.
We could have a lot of guest during GW, thank you for staying everybody.
By the way I am showing 2 pictures which our guest sent us by E-mail.
This is a picture taken at the balcony. The new green leaves were shining as well….
We had been very busy in this GW, but we had a helper who clean up the guest rooms today.
As we could have a short free time today I went to the beach with my children.
Yesterday it was a best day but we had a little cloud today.
However there were a lot of peole on the beach….
We had been very busy these days, so couldn’t to to the beach to take the pictures.
But it was very beautiful day today, therefore I decided to go to the beach after finished to clean up the rooms in a hurry.
Actually we could see a gorgious sea after 5 days.
It was sunny and very hot today, so there were a lot of peole on the beach…
