|Japan||Izu Peninsula||2001.09.22 - 09.24|
Weekend with Friends
The Izu Peninsula is about 2 hours by train from Tokyo. The main city, Atami, looks a lot like Nice, France. Further inland are hills with waterfalls, hiking trails, and natural mineral hot springs. Our friends organized a weekend with us in Izu.
