Tenno Yu of Hakone

Skinny dipping in Hakone on a pleasant weekday night under a full moonlit sky, surrounded by nature and ambient night lamps. Cold autumn night breeze, hot mineral springs warming me. I love these outings. The last train out of Hakone heading back to Tokyo is at around 7pm, last time I checked, but I never worry about that cause' I drive to hot spring spots. Usually at around 9pm most onsen are a deserted little oasis, since most people either head back home or stay overnight. 10:30 usually being around closing time is prime time for me. I scrub down, hit the sauna, cool down, and then soak for about 20 minutes. I do drink a nice icy cold beer, sleep it off a little and head back home. I once met a foreigner who lived here in Japan for seven years, and never once visited a place like this. Are you the same kind of foreigner ?
