    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.

    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 ...

Tom tried the hostels onsen, which was a relaxing hot tub style experience, with strict instructions for cleaning etiquette before getting ...

    ... entirely. We thought we found one,
    but it was the parking lot for a beauty salon, so we backed up a
    one-way street to the parking lot we knew was just about 100m back.
    After parking, we walked along a pedestrian shopping street. Bryan
    tried to procure a working sim card for his phone, but left the
    mobile phone store empty-handed. He believed the solution was lost in
    translation and was unconvinced that it wouldn't be possible. ...

    ... lavender. The famous Farm Tomita, which now is synonymous with lavender in Japan, also found themselves having to give up lavender in favor or rice for some time, until the tourist draw of the purple fields redeveloped the plants' worth.

    Now, lavender essence is almost an afterthought, incorporated into souvenirs, and many of the fields are left to bloom, rather than be harvested for oil production. Since it's the thing to do, I got up ...
