After a few days in Tokyo, we headed out of the city to a peninsula a few hours south. We took a shinkansen (super fast train) for part of the trip which was AWESOMEEE. It’s amazing how much high speed rail is all over Japan! The train down the coast was much slower and smaller, but still an awesome way to see the countryside along the way.
During our few days on the coast, we did some hiking on the volcanic rocks, visited an onsen (hot spring) with a super traditional dinner, and checked out some surf spots.
