Cacti and Beach in Izu

We had breakfast in the hotel and headed for Izu Shaboten Park (Izu Cactus Park). It is a park combining a cactus garden and a zoo.

Katya grows cacti and wanted to go there, but I was not expecting very much.

Katya was right. It is a cactus park with a history of 50 years, and cacti from all over the world were collected. Big and different.


Funny thing was a place for “Cactus Hunting”.

Cacti were planted in the field, and the visitors pick whatever they want to buy them.


After visiting the park, we drove all the way down to Yumigahama Beach in Shimoda city.  Surfers were there, but the waves seemed not so high for surfing.


We drove the way up to Ito. There was a traffic jam, but we were able to avoid it taking a side way.

From the hotel, we walked to “Ito Marine Town“, a tourists’ place for shopping and eating by the harbor.

We had a salad and bowls of sashimi with soup.


They were good and fresh.

In our room in the hotel, we had the doughnuts for dessert.
