2011/11/04 Toi Kinzan Gold Mine

111104goldmine47On last Friday I went to Toi town in Izu city, on the other side of Izu peninsula, with my wife and her friends.

Long time ago there used be a lot of gold mine in this peninsula, but Toi gold mine was the largest one.

We can get into the mine by walking and there are museum and suvenir shops.

Here is a web page of this gold mine museum, which I have just made tonight.

You can see all pictures on the web page on facebook album here.

2011/11/02 Snorkeling at Ochii Beach in Minami Izu town

111102snorkeling09On last Sunday my daughter had a ping pong game at Junio High School in Minami-Izu town, so I took her by my car.

During their games I went to Ocii Beach for snorkeling for the first time.

There is a small fisherman port and the water around breakwater was really clear.

I could see many kinds of fish and took a lot of pictures of them.
