it's Rino from Sakura Hotel Ikebukuro :D
I'll be talking about one of the nicest places for a short trip from Tokyo today!
Have you ever heard of "Izu" which is located in Shizuoka prefecture?
It's about only one hour from Tokyo by bullet train.
I took bullet train to Atami from Tokyo and took local train to "Jogasaki coast station".
It's better talking long than showing pictures so I'll just leave them here!
There were a light house and nice bridge.
I stayed one night in Ito city and went down to Shimoda city by a rental car for this spot called "Ryugu sea cave".
Half way to the cave, we just couldn't help stopping the car and visiting this beach when we ran besides it.
Shirahama means "white sands" and it really was white!
It's too cold to swim in winter but water can get clearer than in Summer so I like visiting beaches in winter too :D
You wouldn't get to find many beaches with white sands in Japan often so it's kinda rare.
I highly recommend you visiting Izu if you are looking for a place to chill and feel nature!
