Last day in Hatsushima

We had breakfast in Oceano. I first went to the restaurant alone and finished mine, while Katya was taking care of Mariya in the room.

Lazy second day in Hatsushima

Today is Saturday. I woke up and had a buffet breakfast in a restaurant Oceano, while Katya took care of Mariya. Then Katya had breakfast in turn. We have been very tired and sleepy after the birth of Mariya. We took a nap until 2 PM. We then went out for a walk. It was not rainy but windy and cold, so we soon walked back to the hotel. Katya and I took coffee and a cake in the lounge. In our room, we watched a sumo tournament held in Fukuoka. Katya somehow likes to watch sumo. Hakuho, the grand champion, won the tournament. At 6 PM, we went to … Continue reading

Izu trip decided

I am preparing an Izu trip from 15th to 17th this month. I have already reserved a room in a hotel in Ito on the 15th, and was waiting for a cancellation at a hotel in Hatsushima island on the 16th. Today, I called to the reservation center and found out 30 people in the list still waiting. So I gave up. I made another one-night reservation in a hotel in Ito, so we will stay in Ito for two nights. It might be not bad to be relaxed in the same hotel.

Hatsushima on Children’s Day, May 5, 2012

Breakfast on the 8th floor. Very nice view.    Katya and I went out for a walk to the sea.    We decided to take a glassboat “Noah”. The boat arrived just before 12 PM. The  boat was full with 24 visitors. There were many fish indeed, but the water was not clear enough because of the plankton of spring.    After the 30-min underwater trip, we took lunch at an Italian restaurant, “Porto“, our favorite.    We walked around the island after lunch. The sea was very beautiful.    It takes less than an hour for a walk around the coast.    We returned to the hotel.    After … Continue reading
