Heda Elegance in Izu

Posted on Thursday, September 09, 2010 | 0 comments

           Yuki and I finally got away to celebrate our anniversary last weekend (only a week late). We stayed overnight at our favorite Japanese-style inn on the Izu peninsula, about a 2 hour drive from here. I think I'll do a separate post on the food at this place alone, but for now here are a few pics of the owners' new puppy and the view from the natural hot spring spa.
  Sadly, the previous dog, Sakura (I may or may not have posted some pics of her previously?), passed away from cancer some time after our visit last year. She was only 10 years old, and so we were sadly surprised to hear the news when we contacted the owners to make reservations. However, the new dog, Moko, looks quite a bit like her and is very friendly. I'm already looking forward to playing with her again next year!

                                     A warm welcome from Moko at the reception desk

                                      She's a licker

            View from the bath...it's hard to see, but that's the ocean just past the roof of the inn

                                 Ears up!
