Trip to Yudanaka to see the Snow Monkeys

... but minus the bubbles and it is completely naturally heated. As it was still raining we did put the umbrella over us to try and stop the cold rain from spoiling it. After a nice soak in the onsen we were both feeling very relaxed.

Mr Yumoto had shown us some menus with recommendations from previous guests for nearby restaurants. We chose one and asked where it was but unfortunately we were there on a Sunday night in off peak season and it was ...

An Epic ride up Mt. Shirane

I had stayed here 3 years ago with Noelle when we passed through on our 2010 bike tour at the same ryokan as tonight's and about 7 years ago with Amy and Wesley when he was only 1 year old (at a different ryokan).

I had decided to stay in Takasaki for a 3rd night in case today's ride revealed that my knee was shot and I would have to evaluate my options. As explained above, the left knee is now better but the right knee is in pain.

Today's ride was a climb up Mt. Akagi, the start ...

Snow monkeys!!!

... did find the right place it was packed and the rather harried looking chef told us it would be a long wait. I think he was hoping we would leave but we said that's fine and sat down outside. This seemed to make us the local entertainment as successive groups of Japanese men, all on an onsen-crawl stopped to chat with us, ask us where we are from, and give us gifts of soft toys and other things they were carrying.
