Finally had some time to dig through some of my favorite onsen, so I posted this one. No, I didn’t write the name. I am not an onsen advert service. Names and things pertaining to location and what not I write about in my book, and soon to be second edition.
The feature about this onsen I wanted to explain is the cypress wood and stone bottom. What a lot of people aren’t aware of is that cypress is extremely slipper when wet, so I was really happy to see green carpet around the sides – excellent safety measure.
After soaking for a few minutes it’s good to get up and walk around a bit in order to cool down. This veranda was huge, which offered a small piece of beautiful nature, like this tree. It’s good to appreciate the little things.
The simple pleasure of a simple tree from a simple minded Japan(ist). Wood, earth, water, sky. A lovely balance.
