We arrived around 1500 and parked in a nearly empty lot right next to the beach. On the way out, Nina pointed out several other parking areas. These places are obviously pretty packed during the summer and warmer weekends. During peak time there are parking fees for all these lots, but we are out of season now, so it was free. Also, the lots tend to close kind of early...around 1800.
After running around on the beach we were all getting a little hungry. So, we decided to stop at Denny's...our first time at a Denny's in Japan. Well, actually, my kids' first time at a Denny's ever.
There wasn't an English menu, so this is what I had. I think it was oysters. The veggie salad on the right was delish....roasted zucchini, cabbage, and pumpkin. WOW!
