When we first got the Hakone condo, Seishi was still working, so we usually left on Friday night after dinner and came home early Sunday morning. This is one of the toll gates on the Atsugi highway.
Just clouds and power pylons.
Another view of Fuji from the Tomei expressway. This time at sunset.
I don't remember where this is. It is somewhere in Izu and very typical of the scenery all along the way.
The 3 lanes here means this was the Tomei expressway.
This ramen shop is along loop road #8, just after we exit the Tomei on the way home. Because of the timing, we almost always have to stop at this light.
