2011/02/26 Cycling to Ogasaki Wing, a good view point in Shirahama, Shimoda

110226shirahama01 Today it was warmer than yesterday.

After I prepared the room, bath and everything for our customers I went to Ogasaki Wing to take pictures for the webpage "Walking Guide in Shirahama" on our website.

The distance between Sakuraya and Ogasaki Wing is about 6 or 7 kirometers, and it takes about 1 hour by walking.

Before getting to Ogasaki Wing there is a steep staircases like this photo.

It was really hard to climb up this carrying the bike on my shoulder.


2011/02/22 Sunrise in Shirahama


This morning, when I was preparing the breakfast for our customers I found out the right from the east sky.

There was a beautiful scenary with sunrise, and I took this through the window of our guest room.

I think the foreign family who is staying at Sakuraya for 4 nights will be able to go to Kawazu town or Minami-Izu town to see Sakura blossoms.
