On the weekend Mario and I went to our favourite place, the Izu Peninsula, for his birthday and our last trip away before we leave Japan.

In Kawazu, there is a different type of cherry blossom that flowers much earlier than the others, so we made a stop there catching our last glimpse of the beautiful flowers before we leave Japan.

We stayed near Shirahama beach, at a very nice Japanese ryokan, the owner was super nice, the place too!

The next day was Mario's birthday, we had cake after breakfast, went for a walk along the beach then had lunch at a Japanese lobster restaurant! It was delicious, but I preferred the lobster cooked so put the pieces in my hot miso soup! 😊

On our drive home, we really didn't want the trip to end, so we stopped at an onsen. We could even choose to have our own private room and big outside bath! It was a perfect, relaxing end to our fantastic weekend!

Hope to see you again Izu...
