    ... balcony looks like something out of a painting. It would be like if the hiking area near North Bend/Mt. Si had a resort town nestled in among its valleys, but with higher elevation.

    ... of the cable car we reached Lake Ashi, which despite the dense fog still looked beautiful and certainly worth the money after all. To end the day we headed to the far less cultural, Yunessun, the so called amusement park of onsen baths.

    ... cooking, this time for an interesting fusion of Japanese and English styles: a Japanese casserole. This involved Japanese sweet potatoes and beef, and demonstrated just how much Coco loved her time in the U.K - she`s certainly incorporated much into her way of life now!
