Overview of today:
After waking to the sea at my window in the morning at the Senoumi ryokan, I explore a series of spots that give a feeling for the daily life of the regular people who make Izu a special place. I chase cherry blossoms, admire an old house, see an ancient jinja with unusual stucco artwork nearby an entire museum dedicated to stucco and stucco artwork. An old school embraces traditional and modern ways. I take a boat ride into a radiant beauty, miss the sunset, and finally land in a stately hotel in the grand tradition.
