This a view from the top of our road down over part of Hiratsuka city. If you look closely, you can see a bullet train rattling past. They whizz down there every three or four minutes. Below is a picture of the hills behind us. On a clear day, apparently, you can see Fuji from the spot I took this picture (off to the left of these hills, as you look at it) but, sadly, the clouds prevented a brace of Japanese clichés for this posting.
