Hakone, Japan - 16th December 2008

By: JaymeC

Today we took the train to Hakone. We had to get off the train at Odwara. From the train station we could see a castle, but we didn't have time to visit. Do you see it far off in the distance?

Here it is when we zoom in.

From here we took an hour long bus ride to our hotel in Hakone. The hotel we're staying at is called a Ryokan. We were in room 7.

Its was a very pretty room.

And we had a nice little view

We got to sleep on a futon at night!

The Ryokan also had some other nice decorations in the halls.

After checking in we went out for a bite of Chinese to eat. It was very yummy, but Jayme's not sure what it is!

From there we tried to go see a shrine, but it started raining really badly! Since it was rainy we went back to the hotel and decided to make use of the bathing rooms. First you go in and put your towel and other stuff in a basket.

Then you go into the bathing room. Since multiple people use the bathing tub you have to wash well before you get in. Here's the soap and other things for a shower.

Then you get in the bathing tub. Its filled with mineral waters and very nice.
Uhoh. I can't find the picture of the tub! I'll have to go find it and add it later.

From there we went back and went to sleep. I hope we get to do lots of neat stuff later..

Write more soon,
Guss
