It is now the best season to enjoy the sea in Hayama, Zushi, and Kamakura! A blue sky, white clouds, and comfortable sea breeze are here in abundance along Route 134, running along the coast. I think May and June are the best months for driving. You enter a completely different world after only an hour's drive or train ride (+bus) from central Tokyo. Morito Beach is also one of the best points to view a stunning sunset silhouetted against Mt. Fuji and Enoshima Island.
There are a lot of nice restaurants here. But, if you want to enjoy really delicious vegetables, nice tender steak, and tasty deserts, a sophisticated atmosphere and stunning view, The SCAPES is for you. Their lunch course is very nice.
If you have more time, you can stay overnight here. On the upper floors of this building, there is a Jacuzzi and hotel rooms. They have only four rooms. Their sales point is: “Escape into a beautiful landscape.” In Michelin's hotel section, they have received a high rating for three consecutive years.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS: An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here. 日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
