Friends in high places

Obviously, someone at the Japan Times is an avid reader of my blog. On Monday, I listed the things I wanted to do (re-read it here) now that I am settled again in Tokyo.

And sure enough, today's Japan Times provides an overview of beach bars in Shonan, including Hayama. Hayama is the most difficult of the beach communities to get to because it does not have its own train service, but as the article says, it is worth the hassle. Zushi or Enoshima are much easier, but not as good.

Thanks to the Japan Times, I can map out some options. Anyone up for a trip to the beach?

Thanks to Jeremy for pointing that out! By the way, it's his fault I am obsessed with the beach here. A few years ago he called me at 2am and asked if I wanted to go to the beach. Of course, I said yes. It was one of my all-time favourite Japan experiences. We drove down with the dogs, swam in the ocean and as dawn broke, clearly saw Mt. Fuji across the bay. One quick ramen later, we were back in Tokyo (by 7am!)
