Let’s Visit Tokyo – Special Edition… Izu

Let’s Visit Tokyo Special Edition… Izu

There’s good news and bad news, let’s start with the bad news… During my week long of holiday I had a SD card problem and lost 16GB of video… I was planning to offer you a 20 to 25 minute long video but, this XXXX SDHC Card lost all my data… However let’s talk about the good news now… Well the good news is that I succeed in shooting 16GB more of video and you have around 12 minutes worth of video. The 2nd part of the good news is that I will cover more about Izu soon…

What’s so special about this place? First I know Izu as well as almost all its little roads and amazing secrets better than Tokyo… My wife and I are lucky enough to own a little place to rest with onsens, tennis and a private pool… (I know, my life sucks)… For the past eight years we roamed almost everywhere in Izu so I have a pretty impeccable knowledge about the place…

Let’s first talk about the video. You can see three different places in Izu (there were supposed to be eight…) The first is a “sleeping” volcano that you can visit and enjoy a stunning surrounding view, the other part is a typical small fishering port in Atami, and the last is an insanely beautiful cliff on the sea made by the old magma of the previous volcano we visited. I recommend anyone visiting this place to try the hiking course, the view is breath taking.

What you won’t see on the video due to my XXX SD card… Are the best three beaches in Shimoda, the ONLY place in all of Izu with clean, white sand… As well as Dogashima, another nice little place where you can find almost no tourists, only locals and despite of JRs huge advertisement campaign.

Finally I recommend EVERYONE to rent a car to tour Izu, the best places are unfortunately always far from a train station… Visiting Izu without a car is a waist of time and money.

I will shoot more of Izu later this August and September, and will write a special report on top of the Let’s Visit Tokyo Series… Please enjoy!

Oh and I almost forgot, the palm trees are the ones in front of our pool

  • Daimaou

  • XXXX

    Thank you. And one thing about vids. This is particulary interesting for me when I see faces of people. This could be difficult of course to capture people by stealth but faces shows life. Places are new and are not moving but new buildings become quite similar everywhere round the world and they are rather a background for people so the very last one (demonstration) gave something never seen before.

    The second interesting thing is a traffic – cars are slightly different then in Europe.

    And finaly old traditional architecture. In fact Japan is rather known as a land of samurais and geishas (it is ok specialy in terms of geishas )) Merci.
