Walking Around Rendaiji

Posted in Places by tokyobling on April 20, 2015

Some more photos of the picturesque little village of Rendaiji, formally belonging to the city of Shimoda on the coast of the Izu peninsula to the southwest of Tokyo. The weather was not too good so the photos might look a little drab. I really need to visit again when the weather is more cooperative! Rendaiji only has two claims to fame in the wider public, one of them being the hot springs around the village. These hotsprings, or onsen, are popular with domestic tourists and you can see a staff member of one of them on her way to work in one of the photos. Throughout the towns there are also public fountains with a twist: the water they sprout is boiling hot! Unfortunately I did not manage to get any decent shots of them. More photos to come though!

    Two tone sakura! It sounds like a wonderful place to relax and soak in onsen.
