After Dinner, Bathtime!
If you are traveling in Japan, hot springs (onsen) are a must-experience item, and we would especially recommend staying at ryokan (Japanese style accommodation facility that you could have breakfast/dinner as a package per night) and not hotels. This ryokan has roten-buro (outside bath tubs) separately for men and women. Shawn thought it was okay roten-buro because it wasn’t really open to a nature and closed in with the fences, and no nice light-ups like the other ryokan we’ve been to. That might be true but regardless, we enjoyed our bath time. Onsen in this Hoshokaku (our ryokan) was also 6 out of 10.
