2011/09/29 Snorkeling at Sehama Beach in Tago, Nishi-Izu Town

110929snorkeling11 I have been thinking that I wanted to go to Nishi-Izu town for snorkeling for a long time.

2 years ago, when I went to Nishi-Izu town for buissines I went to Futo Beach and found out that the water was very clear, and decided to come here again in the future.

On 29th September I could go to Futo beach but the condition was not good, so I change the point to Sehama Beach next to Futo beach.

There is a island called "Son no shima", and I could find out a lot of fishes around this island.

2011/09/27 Kamen Rider Fourze

110927yuuki01 On every Sunday morning Kamen Rider "Fourze" is televised from 8:00 AM.

My son, Yuuki usually doesn't wake up early on weekdays, but he wakes up by himself on only Sunday morning.

Kamen Rider Fourze is a new hero on TV started from the beginnning of this month.

This hero can wear various weapons or tools by using switches on his belt.

This afternoon Yuuki was making somethings in his room and came to the kitchen to show them.

Yes, he made 3 switches with toy, legos, by himself.

He loves Kamen Rider!!!

Pension Sakuraya in Shimoda, Japan

2011/09/25 Thank you for staying with us this summer!

110925dining01 My daughter may caught a cold and has a fever around 37 degrees.

Because it had been really hot here in Shimoda until last week, but in these days it has been very cold every morning and evening.

Please be careful, everybody in Japan.

By the way all customers checked out this morning, and the long summer season was over.

After May 11th we have been worrying about this summer because of the earthquake and the nuclear accident, but we could have a lot of customers from all over the world during this summer and didn't have any troubles at Sakuraya.

Thank you very much for staying with us this summer.

Anyway, this morning we started to do a general house cleaning after the long busy season.

First of all, as we don't have any customers on these weekday we washed all bed covers and mats of the Western style rooms and dried them in the dining room!

2011/09/22 Blue sky after typhoon – – Shirahama Ohama Beach

110922beach06 This time the typhoon attacked Japan and landed in Shizuoka Pref.

We had been in blackout for 5 hours from 4:00 PM, but the power supply was cut off in some places near Shimoda for 24 hours.

Anyway we are all safe.

Today I went to the beach with my son after school to take pictures.

It was really beautiful day and they had good waves for surfing in Shirahama.

During their stay they went to the beach, Shimoda Aquarium and some places in Shimoda.

As it had been sunny and very hot here in Shimoda, they could have a great time.

When they checked out he said,

"We came here for our 2nd wedding anniversary.!


And thank you for choosing our Pension for your memorial trip!

2011/09/19 Blue sky & White clouds – – Shirahama Ohama Beach

110919beach11 After taking pictures it is very difficult to select the pictures which I post on our website.

When I was cleaning up the guest rooms after check-out I could find out the blue sea through the window.

" Yes, they are inviting me today!!"

After 2:00 PM I went to the nearest beach "Shirahama".

Today it was really hot and humid, but the sky and the sea were gorgeous!!

I took a lot of pictures on the beach and this is one of best pictures today.

The white clouds were floating in the sky!!

2011/09/14 Snorkeling on Togai-hama Beach at the tip of Izu peninsula

110914togaihama01 I have been thinking that I was going to go to the Togai-hama Beach to take photos since 3 days ago.

When I served the breakfast our customer this morning he said,

"Where is the good point for snorkeling?"

I told him some points in Shimoda, but I said to him,

"Oh, are you interested in snorkeling? I was going to go to the one of good points by accident, actually. Do you go with me? As we don't have any other customeres today I can take you there by  my car".

After breakfast we went to Togai-hama together by my car.

It was amazing point for snorkeling! we could meet a lot of fishes and found out the stingray as well!

Of course I could take a lot of good photos for our website.
