Imaihamakaigan, Izu Island (Kaneyoshi-ittouan) – Day 2(a)

Imaihamakaigan Ryokan
Waking up early to head to their outdoor hot spring. Since it was still quite cold in March, they have a pot with free flowing water to cool the fruits and vegetables which you can pick up to munch. Since we were there like so early, they have not replenished new fruits in yet.

The outdoor pool, we were able to take photos since there was no one there so early where it was just too cold to be out. (Don’t try it when there are people inside) 😛 Reason why we waited till morning to go to their outdoor hot spring as their outdoor hot spring is chargeable at 500JPY per person on the day you check in with appointed times. However, it is free for use between 6am to 9am every morning.

They even provide straw hats for you for rainy days. Though it was very very cold to be out there because their shower area is so right outside.

After our soak, we headed back to the same place we had dinner last night for our breakfast. Breakfast side dishes.

Sakuras were already in full bloom in this area as they have the early blooms and temperatures are slightly warmer compared to Tokyo due to their more South latitude.
