It was, needless to say, a remarkable evening and a extremely enjoyable way to spend a 26th birthday. The art of "doing nothing" is highly underrated in American culture and relaxing without guilt is something that can be rare but also something that we will hopefully have a bit more of over the coming year.
And of course the onsen was spectacular.
