... 100 years may not be old in the history of humanity but for a wooden structure of 3 floors with extensive woodwork it was pretty darn impressive. The pictures hopefully do it some justice. From top to bottom everything is wooden. The doors are papered over for privacy which means they don't insulate from sound or temperature but traditionally in Japan buildings are not heated (imagine how cost effective that must be). We staggered up to ...

Since i had absolutely no plans today to do anything but maybe stroll around town a bit, i got out of bed at half past ten in the morning and just soaked a bit in the private onsen in the hostel. Evelyn gave me a good tip on a nice supermarket just a short walk and along the waterfront. It took me less than 10 minutes to get to the shop and it was a very luxurious one. They had apples packed in plastic and in styrofoam to prevent them ...

A travel blog entry by canadiansmiley

It was two train rides and 5 hours of travel. Relaxed in the bath and have a good night ...

After lunch, I turned up R18 which increased gradually for a few kms before the hairpin turns started. The higher I rode, the more the views opened up. However, it wasn't until I turned onto R127 that the vistas stood out. This was a fair bit of up and down riding but the views both out into the ocean looking at Shizuoka City and into the mountains were terrific. Plus, the roads were relatively quiet save the ...
