Onsen with Yamamoto family

Going to the Onsen, the Japanese hot bath, is always an enjoyable experience, but even more so in good company of the Yamamoto family. In the typical Onsen resort you are provided with a Japanese bath robe that you should wear for dinner and the breakfast. It can be quite amusing to see that everybody in the restaurant, perhaps as much as 100-200 beings, wearing the exact same clothes.

Usually , after arriving at the resort, we eat dinner, followed by a short rest in the hotel room. Then we head to the hot bath for about one hour until time to go to bed, at least that’s what I do with Yamamoto-san! But in some other occasions, when your company is not too sleepy from all the beers drank for dinner, you can play ping pong which is a popular distraction in Onsen resorts. If you still have energy in reserve after a heated table tennis game, you can reserve a private Karaoke room. Then of course, at 7h00AM the next morning, you have to take the ritual morning bath before breakfast!

Gaijin San

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.
