Drizzling rain; neighing horses;sizzling bacon;spurting fountains;cool autumn breeze early in the morning. The colours of autumn in this part of Japan are priceless.
When it's you, all alone, in that hot tub at 5am on a very cold, crisp autumn morning, in the quietude of it all, you get a real sense of the seasons. The steam is extra aromatic from the morning dew, and the smell of freshly cut wood. It's a type of heaven.
