After a blissful early morning soak in one of the three private onsens at the Ryokan Yuko san and I went for a walk along the waterfront and came across a man harvesting salt from the bay. Loved the use of an old twin washer/ drier to spin off the excess water. We both came away with a fresh bag of Izu Peninsular salt that will last us for at least a year. Sea water is pumped into a large vessel above a fire place. Water evaporated off and the salt spun.
We took the S Pulse Dream Ferry from Toi to Shimuza Port. On clear days the views of Mt Fuji are spectacular, unfortunately the day we travelled Mt Fuji was completely covered by cloud.
