      First onsen experience. Was extremely tentative about the prospect of using a public bath. The resort provided ample instructions for the novice like me. There are 3 onsen. Men and women rotate on when to use which. During my stay, I tried the onsen with large windows for viewing. It turned out very useful as it was fireworks night.
      The buffet dinner was disappointing though. We were not sure if it was possible not to book the night without the buffet. So we did. Turns out there are quite a number of restaurants in the hotel.

      ... a view of the valley from there. We didn't stay long as a whole bus load of other tourists descended. The tour guide had to blow a whistle in a shrill Morse code type signal to help the driver reverse into the parking spot. That sent Owen into hysterics as our driver did it all by himself without any help from anyone.

      We returned to Biei Station to catch the train to Asahikawa. We went to have a look at the Information Centre/souvenir shop. It had ...

      ... i quickly turned back.....that will be fine! So the morning of our snow day I woke to sam looking at me....."we're going to see snow today! :D" we dressed for the cold and headed for the train. 1.5 hrs of Shinkansen north to a little village, a 30 min bus trip as promised, deep into a volcanic gorge..... sheer cliffs and snow capped peaks.... small piles of half melted snow...yep right direction...... then we headed through a tunnel and popped out on ...

      The highlight is definitely the sake testing. The non premium sake tasting Is free. The few premium sake they do charge a nominal fee. For 150 yen, I tasted a full to the brim cup of the most expensive premium sake. Which we eventually bought. Think it was about 5940 yen. When compared side by side, the difference in quality was ...

      ... directly out of the front through a large window. We transferred at Kamikawa to a local bus which took us to the onsen (spa) village of Sōunkyō. The small village was easily walkable and we dropped into the tourist information to plan of the next couple of days activities. The old Japanese couple were very friendly and gave good recommendations, but were especially funny when Jen asked about the possibility of encountering bears, of which they ...

      ... naked! It was reeeeeeally ******* cold. I felt
      like I got frostbite on my toes, but after pouring some of the
      complimentary tea on them (to the amusement of the staff), they
      almost felt warm again.

      We were not too far off from the Sounkyo Hostel, so we arrived a
      little after nightfall due to our detour. It is a nice place that has
      a cottage-like atmosphere, which seems to host only 60+ year-olds
      with the exception of Bryan and ...
