Trip to Izu

To celebrate the graduation of my roommate Tetsuo, my roommates and I planned a trip to Izu, a beautiful peninsula 2 hours out of Tokyo.

Departure from Shinjuku Station

After 2 hours of travel we arrived in Izu and went to a famous restaurant near the station.

Oh and did I mention that all of us love photography?

I forgot what the grilled fish is called, but it was marinated in some rich teriyaki sauce and was unbelievable delicious!

We then woke up at 5 am the next morning to see the sunrise

Later that morning we rented a car so that we could freely visit the many destinations of Izu.  

In addition to stunning coastlines, Izu also has many nature trails

The Sakura were also in full bloom!

The coastlines of Izu are one of Japan's national treasures.  We got on a boat tour to see them at sunset.

We then ended out trip with some pictures of Weeping Sakura at a shrine near the station.
