... that we ate whole by the chopstick-full. It took us a few minutes to decide on a restaurant and a few more to gather our courage for a new and slightly intimidating experience but once we were seated and the two helpful waitresses had explained how to order (in English no less) we were ready for anything. The food was delicious and we were stuffed by the end of it but without any other plans for the day this wasn't an issue. On the way ...

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

... worth suffering for...and I have suffered plenty on this tour.

Unlike Norikura and Shirane which both had a fair amount of traffic and tourist facilities at the top or along their routes, the secondary mountain routes of the Izu Hanto are more isolated. They don't connect major population centres and, especially along the west coast, don't attract as many visitors. I could easily spend a few days here exploring the ...
