The weather has been pretty hot and humid here in Tokyo, so on sunday we decided to head out of the city and go for a small hike near Shin Zushi on the coast. The walk actually took us up into the local hills and we were surrounded by trees and ferns, which kept us cooler. But by the time we reached the top, we were dripping! The view was quite impressive, looking over the surrounding land and then on to the ocean. We had lunch at the top and then worked our way down, past flower fields, streams and bamboo forests. It was a welcome break from the intensity of the city heat.
