... they are used to people and just walk right near you. A treat was seeing 2 of the young ones swimming and playing in the pool, just like little kids. They swim under water and squabble just like human kids. They spend a lot of time grooming each other. We could have stayed all day as they were so entertaining.

... private tour for 4! The guide then took us up the mountains on a magical mystery tour.

... people know each other. There's something cleansing (no pun intended) about sitting at a stool in a stall with a low mounted water tap and a plastic pan that you fill with water and drench yourself. I find it quite refreshing and relaxing and many Japanese dream of retiring in a town or home with an onsen facility.

I've not plotted a route for tomorrow yet. Needless to say, judging by the mountains in all the photos, there will be climbing ...

Walked to Matsumoto castle, an amazing old wooden castle, shoes off, and walked up the 6 levels. Some stairs were very steep, almost vertical. Beautiful manicured gardens. We had ice creams under the vine covered pergola, and then went to the Matsumoto city museum, small but interesting. All tired and hungry went to ...
