Dip in the Akigawa and "Sashimi Konyaku" at Michiko's Sobatei in the Woods

A hot day last Sunday, but I still got in a nice ride with Jerome to the Akigawa.

GPS off for a few stretches. Around 135-140kms total.

Faded signage along the Tamagawa.
A nice stop early on at Lohas 24 cafe and coffee roasters
It has fast become a cyclist mecca. ... like MOB's future shop in Bremen!
The roasting equipment, apologies for reflection in the glass.

In no time we were past Itsukaichi

Left at the "T", less than 50 meters, and the steps down to the secret swimming hole

Ahh, looks nice!

Sleeping Frenchman

Beached whale
Up the hill 300 meters more elevation, to Tokisaka Toge
And the Toge no Chaya Soba-tei Michiko! 

An Edo era building hidden back in the woods

Konyaku Sashimi - a Positivo Espresso favorite.

Still Ajisai here!

And these too were beautiful, ... what are they?

Thanks for this :-) I'm so crazy busy now that I transitioned from FT to PT university teaching, that I hardly have time to go for walk. Meanwhile my bike is literally developing cobwebs :(
