After the first April tour became a victim of Japans earthquake crisis aftermath, Bellwood’s second bike tour brought us again to Hakone. With the route identical to last years fall tour to Numazu, we enjoyed the scenery in picture perfect spring weather. Driving from Chiba via Yokohama and Odawara, my personal highlight is the Toyo Turnpikes parking area with the beautiful view on Hakone’s Lake Ashinoko and Mount Fuji. This place is a Mekka for all motorized fans to see and be seen. Exotic cars combined with the thunder of engines fill the landscape. Our destination is the port of Numazu, were fresh seafood is served.
