The last part of our Atami adventure took us to breakfast December 29th. We drove both cars to a very popular soba restaurant in the area. And because it is very popular it was very crowded this day. So, we didn't go there. Fortunately we had another option (choice). There is a small soba restaurant further up the mountainside that we have visited. It is called MIKAWA. We drove up, up and up. The roads are narrow and winding. One place was very narrow. I had to get out of the car and guide Miwako through. But we arrived safely at the restaurant. This restaurant seats only 14 customers maximum. We got the middle table. Everyone had soba. And some included tempura. The dessert came with a drink. Of course I chose iced tea instead of coffee (I will not drink coffee again this year...and maybe forever.) All was delicious. It was time to return home. We said our goodbyes then went our separate ways. The three of us headed to a hot spa resort on the Ken Ou Do in Hidaka. It was very relaxing. We stayed there five hours! Then we headed home to relax some more. It was an excellent trip indeed.
