江ノ島亭:Lunch on the Rocks!

The reason for blogging this particular place is because it was the first place I was taken to when I first arrived here in Japan, so lots of good memories were shared here.   Also, of all the restaurants on this island, this one has the best view and seating and is also the most spacious I think.   For sure, the view is very good on a clear day.   The restaurant's foundations is on a large rock encrustation that overlooks the Sagami Bay.

The neat thing about this place are the large Hawks that fly so close by the window.    On a good day, clear weather, you can throw bread out the window  and a hawk will soar down and catch it with its mouth.   Timing is everything.

Getting will require a little walking up and down stairs.  Even if you take the escalator you'll still be required to use the stairs to get to this place.  

Simple pleasure.
