... 100 years may not be old in the history of humanity but for a wooden structure of 3 floors with extensive woodwork it was pretty darn impressive. The pictures hopefully do it some justice. From top to bottom everything is wooden. The doors are papered over for privacy which means they don't insulate from sound or temperature but traditionally in Japan buildings are not heated (imagine how cost effective that must be). We staggered up to ...

... were kind of surprised when the sake glasses came. It was kind of like a glass in a cup on a dish. The waitress came with a big botlle of sake and poured it in so that it overflowed both the glass and the cup and so we ended up with about three glasses of sake where we were expecting one. :-P Both the food and the sake were delicious.

It was two train rides and 5 hours of travel. Relaxed in the bath and have a good night ...

... shower was a bit unexpected. This though turned out to be my first introduction to the traditional Japanese onsen. Here men and women are separated and bathe, naked, in large communal hot springs. A daunting experience, and surprising in a country where modesty appears to be high on the agenda. Not in an onsen! Happily my hotel has mini private onsen which suits nicely after a day at the beach. Out in Itō I ...
