Halfway down the east side of the Izu Peninsula are the jagged bays of Jogosaki, where walking trails and a suspension bridge allow visitors to admire this stretch of coastline. The Hanafubuki is located an easy walk or shuttle bus ride away, with a dozen rooms and individually designed villas spread out in woodland. It’s the ideal place to come back to after a day’s walking, as there are seven communal hot spring baths to choose from and you can use them privately. Enjoy a multi-course traditional ‘kaiseki’ meal in the ‘ship’ restaurant decked out in mast and sails before retiring to seclusion, peace and quiet. The lady who greets foreign guest speaks fluent English, Western twin bed rooms are available, vegetarians are catered for and wi-fi is available in the main areas.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
