... it up to Shiroyama Park which I had wanted to do a 5km walk thru, but the 'Keep Out, Beware of the Bears' signs and tapes were still across the various walking tracks into the forest.
The view over town while sitting under the shady trees was a lovely break from the sun though we pondered the inconsiderate behaviour of the bears.
Back down the hill we went, wandered a few more streets then headed back towards the cente of town. There is so little traffic here that ...
... makes me very uncool to say so but I'm not a fan. I think if it were warm I'd like it but chewing cold rice is just not fun in my opinion. Let's hope that changes over the next 2 weeks or I've got a feeling meal times are going to be interesting. We're staying in a ryokan - a traditional Japanese guest house.

... said I have a good memory when we were looking for places. They're half right. I didn't look at my screenshot of the walk once. If I've driven it, ridden, walked it, I'll remember it. I forget to BRING stuff with me all the time. I had room service again, roast pork and more edemame. Today I was out and about for 11 and a half hours. I had another wonderful dip in the onsen. There are two onsens, men's and women's. I was so eager to go in, ...
