Today I walked to Tsumekizaki cape in Shimoda to see the flowers of narcissus.
This festival has been held since last December 20th, and now it is good timing to see the fully blooming there.
It was sunny and we didn't have cold wind, so it was very warm here in Shimoda.
I took some pictures on the way to Tsumekizaki.

Today we got a great present from
Our customers who live in German and have stayed at Sakuraya
three times sent us these two bottles of wine.
They are made in German
and one of them is an icewine.
I have never drunk icewine and have not
tried them yet.
So we are looking forward to drinking them.
I took this picture today.
This tree is Sakura called 'Kawazu Sakura', which blooms earlier than the other kind of Sakura in Japan.
Kawazu Sakura Festival will be held after February 5th.
Here is the information of Sakura festival.
They came from Hong Kong and stayed at
Sakuraya for 1 night.
They traveled in Hokkaido for 8 days last year and
came to Japan this year again with the same period.
She is holding a
postcard which we gave her as a present of 25th anniversary of Pension
We could have a great time with you.
Thank you for staying with us!
I walked around for an hour after 2 days.
There was nobody on the beach when I went there this afternoon.
They didn't have good waves for surfing, so the surfers went to the other beaches, I guess.
Today it was sunny after 5 days here in Shimoda, but they still have a lot of snow on the top of Amagi mountain.
I hope we have a lot of snow in Shirahama, but it rarely snows in this place.
Amagi mountain in Izu peninsula is covered with a lot of snow now.
But we didn't have any snow here in Shimoda.
Be careful, everybody!
Yesterday we got a new year card from France.
They stayed at Sakuraya for 2 nights in last June.
We remember them very well because they gave us a present, La petit tour Eiffel When they checked out.
Thank you very much.
We really appreciate it!
I walked around in Shirahama today again.
We had a little cold north wind, but the sea was shining under the blue sky.

I went to the Shimoda harbor by walking for an
hour this afternoon.
There is a sightseeing boat called 'Susquehannna'
which we can ride to see the harbor for 20 minutes.
Here is a web page which I posted a lot of photos when I rode it with my children.
