Tomiyama round

On this visit I was really in the mood for cycling so, instead of climbing my local mountain (Tomiyama), as I normally do, I decided to cycle around it. It's only about 15 miles, but took me a while as I kept stopping to take photos, and in the end it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.


There are two reasons why I love my holiday home in the small coastal of Iwai. Firstly, when people ask me what I did at the weekend, I tell them where I went. I say it quickly and they think I've been to Hawaii... 'cool', they say. 

The second reason is that, despite it being only a couple of hours from Tokyo, despite it being no great shakes on Tripadvisor and the like, it really is a beautiful spot. My paradise, my Hawaii... my Iwai.
