    Since the weather was nice, very clean. A home page, a little different, drink what you wanna buy the side corner to sell, Chair, and desk are confused, but still is good. Also stripped down the slopes of the mountains, so now even the grass planting, is a stroll road. So buy the whole mountain and still use only the entrance still would continue to be "developed". I think the weather is nice, a good walk.

    There was a worry that soon finished at their best roses, in June, but quickly countered. There are many great English garden large and well-appointed. Go to the top in the Park by shuttle bus, walking down. Walking while watching a beautiful landscape is wide, so it wasn't that tired. Of each garden, various roses bloomed beautifully, like rose was unbearable.

Where to stay in Atami

The fairly modestly sized urban area of Atami boasts a number of places to stay, which is fitting for this holiday resort town. The most built-up area around the harbor has lots of modern hotels and more established guesthouses. Many focus on comfort and luxury, with traditional onsens at most of the places. Shoestring travelers will find some budget-friendly options without spa facilities--you can always pop into one of the accommodations with an onsen if the mood strikes.
