... onsen was calling me. I had loved them last time in Japan. I went in the indoor one first... nothing like a soak in mid forties water to sooth & relax. Then I went into the outdoor onsen. The cool wind above and piping hot water was so invigorating! I even sat outside the water to cool down a little (in 9 degrees in the nude). Very refreshing!

Here the hot springs, erupting geysers and bubbling pools of boiling mud dominate a fascinating landscape. We take the Hakone rope way from Sounzan down to Togendai on lake Ashinoko. We take a boat journey around the lake which is a water filled volcanic crater with a circumference of 18K. We are now making our way to Tokyo by ...
