We spent an amazing 36 days in Japan! We did a lot of traveling, and we went back and forth between a lot of locations, cities, and districts. To make things easier to read and write, we have grouped everything in our travels into city locations and not exactly by time.
We arrived in Yokosuka late, on a train trip from Tokyo. We got a bit lost, took a bus the wrong direction and attempted to get off and walk back to the bus station before we got too far. It added a few extra hours to our journey. We should have stayed on the bus though, as by the time we arrived, it had looped back around, with the driver giving us a puzzled look.
After a lot of confusion at the bus station, one of the first and only times we actually got lost in Japan, we ended up taking a Taxi in frustration, as it was getting late and we were tired.
It was dark by the time we got off the correct bus at the bottom of the hill that led to where we would be staying. After a hike with all our luggage we arrived. It looks a lot better in the daytime, but it was pretty spooky at night, especially hiking through what felt like other people's back yards.
Why all this work for an Airbnb location? It was listed as one of the top ten Airbnb locations to stay at in Japan.
The house was a yogo studio, and was made clear in the Airbnb ad. We were looking for something a bit different, and it was very different.
This is a bathtub. It looks almost the size of a kitchen sink right? It almost was.
What we weren't expecting were the massive huntsman spiders. Multiple. They were large, and fast, the biggest we saw was the size of an adult male hand.
The spiders and the spookiness of the place went away in the light of day however. It was a really pretty and secluded spot.
A short walk from the coast of Yokosuka, we spent our days walking along the sidewalk and exploring the area. It was a nice change to the rustling, bustling cities.
The most memorable meal was at this building on the second floor. Nanyou Tei. It is an amazing soup dish, filled with vegetables or seafood or both and whatever else you want, in an amazing aromatic curry broth.
Be careful on the beach in Yokosuka, they warn of bombs and mines!
We had dinner at the Indian restaurant, Royal Parasol, this was on our first night in Yokosuka, and we were starving. Luckily it was tasty.
Despite all the spiders and the spookiness of where we stayed. Yokosuka was a really great place to relax. We really enjoyed it.
