Hotel Chikurakutei is a hot spring resort located in the town of Minamiaso. The hotel features many cottages each having a small private garden and outdoor hot bath. Various sections of the hotel are linked together by covered outdoor walkways surrounded by trees and flowers. The hotel also features a large main public Onsen with indoor and outdoor baths. The restaurant serves delicious food and the personnel of the hotel offered us a very warm welcome. I highly recommend this hotel.
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
