There was a large window, and we were able to see a lot of trees from there.
We had very good time in peace to sat down in front of the window and just relaxed.

My sister and I went to Atami at Shizuoka pref. for an overnight trip to hot spring resort、Atami. Atami is very close to Tokyo. It takes less than 1 hour by a bullet train from Tokyo station. It is very easy to go on an overnight trip from Tokyo.

We stayed at a hotel, ‘Kai’ in Atami. The hotel is classical Japanese style, but it was renovated beautifully.
Also, we are able to have a relaxed time taking baths in hot springs at the hotel. There are two different baths including an open air bath and an indoor bath.

Moreover, it is located in front of Sagami Bay, and it is also surrounded by a lot of trees.
We are able to enjoy the beautiful nature around.
