August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, ...

One Reason Why I Like Autumn

Since Autumn is upon us, September 23rd, I decided to go through some onsen photos of mine which highlight some nice fall foliage. This onsen in the photo was taken in Niigata in Myoko Kogen, which by the way is one of the best places one can admire Autumnal beauty in Japan. Thankfully it has still maintained its charm even today and is not regarded as a popular tourist destination for many non-Japanese.

This onsen is free and can be used through-out the day for those seeking respite from a long hike or trek. The quality of water is very good and hot especially with the cold chill of winter’s breeze against your back. Fall fling it!


  1. At least in Japan you get some sense of the seasons.. I was in Okinawa for 4 years and there was the hot season and the less hot season... It was nice to explore though.. Is this from 2007? Since we haven't hit sept 23rd...? Or was that a typo... I hope to have a few new fall photos in the weeks to come so thanks for the visit and come back by.

  2. i love autumn too, september is my lucky month...enjoy this season. cheers

  3. What a beautiful place. I'd definitely like to rest there during a hike. Thanks for sharing!
