... lush a bit like Byron hinterland. Then the surf beaches and rock formations reminded me a little of point perry near Coolum. Nice! Of course this place has a style all its own we're in Japan! :) Very excited to be here. Destination: Shimoda and our home for 3 nights at Shirahama beach.

We head east just north of Toi, the road is once again narrow and extremely winding. Pretty scenery, kind of like ...
... thermometer measuring the water indicates it is about 40C or 104F! Lots of people take a foot bath, it's nice and relaxing and with the special spring water it must be good for your feet as well. Once we have left Ito there are less and less houses and more countryside to enjoy. We try to find a large natural hot spring waterspout that is announced on a sign on the side of the road. Signs are sparse and we end up on a narrow road and stop ...
