    ... a drink at the tea house. However, we did peek inside the family-run establishment that has been serving refreshments for over 350 years. A large pot being heated over an open fire filled the room with the smell of wood smoke, and had Will wanting to call Fireman Sam (his favorite TV fire hero). Later, he would report that the “fire house” was his favorite part of the day.

    We continued hiking crisscrossing the road several times. Will loved a ...

    ... change into our yukata (light weight summer kimono) and contemplate the public baths. After reading the instructions for the bath, including no use of the baths following the consumption of alcohol, no swimming in the baths and no washing your underwear I rule out the public nakedness.

The surrounding gardens are beautiful with 2 waterfalls and a small shrine. Cam and Omi had a soak in the hot tub and Celie is amused because when you open the toilet door the toilet lid automatically puts itself up and makes a sound like 'hi'. We area about to go to dinner, not sure what to expect but we're very excited. Until ...

    ... held out for us and although it was really cloudy, it was at least dry until we descended. Soon after we got back to the Fifth Station the rain started and the weather deteriorated, so all-in-all we were pleased to have done it when we did.
