Kurashita No Yu (onsen in Hakuba)

Yesterday’s post, or at least the part about making friends in an onsen, reminded me of an experience we had in Hakuba back in October. We went to a great onsen called Kurashita No Yu (倉下の湯) near the river.

The reddish-brown, iron-rich waters were soothing and wonderful. The views weren’t bad either, even with a cloudy sky.

But the best part was the company. Ryan and I made friends with a couple of really nice gents from Kanazawa (金沢). We took photos with them, swapped information, were offered their drinks out of the back of their car, and have kept in contact ever since. Ryan has even been invited to come live with them in a home-stay sort of arrangement this summer.
