The Izu peninsula, about 100km from Tokyo, a hot destination for motorcycle riders. Most tourists just take the train to Atami. But the rest of this massive piece of land is not to be missed. There's palm trees, waterfalls, meadow-ed highlands, and coastal radness.
If nature isn't your thing, you can almost always see hella Ferraris. Or, like today, a Fairlady Z club.
If cars ain't your bag, Izu has the food thing going on. Lots of fresh fish, local wasabi, and some odder things. Here's my lunch of shish kebabed wild boar.
So gimme some pictures already!
The problem with me and Izu is that when I ride with my camera, the weather turns to shit. You can't see Fuji from the Izu skyline when you can't see the side of the road 2m away.
And when the weather is good, I'm riding with my track racer friends, and we never stop long enough to take out big bulky SLR cameras.
Anyways, stay tuned for Izu part 2, sometime in the next year hopefully.
