2018/05/13 Making Soba Workshop in Shimoda

Our customers from France asked me to have making Soba (buckwheat noodle) experience before coming to Japan.

So I went to Kazono district in Shimoda with them for its workshop today.

It was the first time for me to make it, but I was really excited with them.

The handmade Soba was chewy and of course it was delicious!!

When they were making Soba they said that they would be going to buy rolling pin, Soba knife, Soba ball and everything to make Soba in Tokyo and take them to France!!

(Soba making teacher doesn’t speak English…..)

They came to Japan from Germany for the 1st time.

Before coming to Shimoda they went to Kyoto, Kamikochi, Nakatugawa and Matsumoto for 2 weeks.

They love walking and hiking, so they went to Tsumekizaki cape by walking and took Suzaki walking trail to Ebisujima island on the 2nd day.

On the 3rd day they walked in Shimoda city and went to Shimoda aquarium.

We had great time and good communications with you!

Thank you very much for staying with us.

2018/05/04 Shirahama Beach during GW

I took my son to the station because he and his basketball team mates had practice matches in Inatori.

After that I took a picture of sun on the nearest beach this early morning.

And after all of our guests checked out this morning I found out a mobile phone in a guest room.

So I went to the nearest Seven-Eleven to give it back our guests and took pictures of the beach after that.

It was beautiful day, but really really cold because of strong west wind.

I’ve never experienced such a cold day during Golden Week in these 10 years or more!

They came to Japan for the 2nd time.

They are traveling for 3 weeks and went to Kanazawa, Takayama, Miyajima, Nagasaki, Kagoshima, Yakushima island and some other places.

And they came to Shimoda from Kotohira in Kagawa prefecture and stayed with us for 3 nights.

It had been almost sunny and went to the beach every day.

Thank you very much for staying with us.

P.S When I went to the station to pick my daughter up I took them by my car.

They are from Canada and England, and came to Japan in last July to get into the university as study abroad students.

It was the first time for them to visit Izu peninsula, but they were lucky to have sunny days during their stay.

On the 2nd day they went to Suzaki walking trail and swam at Tsumekizaki cape.

They went to Jogasaki in Ito city after check out.

Thank you very much for staying with us.

We are looking forward to meeting you someday again.
