    ... heights so I had been procrastinating about this excursion but I sure am glad that we did it. We rented bikes at the train station and then headed off on the 6km cycle to the start of the on ramps. I darn near pooped my pants when I saw how tall that damn bridge really was. Just think Golden Gate Bridge with no end in sight!

    Well it was too late to turn back now so onward we went. My hands were sweating and I had such a firm grip on the handlebars that I had an upper ...

    ... We then headed back to Dogo Onsen and decided to visit the oldest onsen in town: dogo honkan. Unfortunately, men and women are still separated but at least we took the option to meet in a common room where you can have tea and biscuits together. It was a nice experience and Willem loved their yukatas so much that he even bought one with the white heron on it. The emblem of the bath house is ...

Good food :) In the meantime, our room with table had been switched into a room with futon beds: good ...

    ... bliss; a huge downhill stretch with no pedalling for ages. It was soooo good! There was a rose garden not far off the main track so we went there. Dave and Ben got their girlie on and we all were amazed by the range and colour of all the roses. It was a lovely garden and they were all in bloom. After a walk around we spied an odd bouncy thing with children on it. We went over, intrigued. It was a bouncy "hill"! We had never seen anything like it before! We took off our ...

    In Japan the onsen experience is greatly enjoyed my many people. With hundreds of them across the country you might think that it is difficult to distinguish between them at time. However in Matsuyama, they have one of the oldest onsen in the country and certainly one of the great onsen buildings. In fact this is the only onsen in the country that still has a room solely for the use of the emperor. When he is not ...
