Mt. Tsukuba

Mt. Tsukuba is a mountain that can be reached in two hours from Tokyo, and is known as a mountain climb that can be enjoyed by a variety of people, from beginners to advanced climbers.
Tsukuba Plum Grove is a sightseeing spot with a vast site of approximately 4 hectares.

The park is planted with various kinds of plum trees, including white, red, and edge plum trees, and the early plum blossoms bloom beautifully in late January. The contrast between the giant rocks of Mt. Tsukuba and the plum blossoms is worth seeing.

Kujukuri

Kujukuri is blessed with good quality waves suitable for surfing throughout the year, and is popular with many surfers both in Japan and overseas. It is known as a surfing venue for the Olympics. Spending the night in an autobahn car while listening to the sound of waves on the beach is sure to be a wonderful memory. There are many fresh and delicious seafood restaurants in the area. After you’ve enjoyed your seafood and beer, you might want to get up early the next morning to try your hand at surfing!

The author loves the beach where she stayed with a friend who is a good surfer. There is a restaurant within walking distance and camping is free. Drinking beer while watching the waves and the stars on a midsummer night was the best!
