          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.

          We decided to try the a Western breakfast this morning at the cafe on the 1st Floor. Robyn and Trevor were already there. We had the full breakfast. I opted for the omelette and Joseph had the fried eggs. We had soup, salad, toast, yoghurt, ham and sausages. Unfortunately, the omelette was too runny for me so Joseph had another helping of eggs.

          We caught the Super-Ozora 3 from Sapporo at 8.51am to arrive in Shintoku at 11.06am. The weather forecast was ...

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 ...

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 ...
