Our first experience in a Japan style hotel - Ryokan
We have been surprised by the beautiful setting at the shore of this lake, its room which we liked. This Ryokan has as well their thermal bath - Onsen - and the best there is even an outdoor onsen -rotem-buro -

After some shopping, it was time to meet Chris and our friends from North Carolina, Gabriel and Sarah at the T.V. Tower to go to the Autumn Fest.
