Day 11 – 28 Nov 2008
We decided to cut short our stay at Osaka and make a trip to Hakone. CS and J were telling us about Hakone and PG was really tempted to see what was there and try out the onsen. Anyway it was on the way back to Tokyo.
We did not make any prior reservations, so upon arrival, we made our way to the Tourist Information Centre. The staff could speak English and reservation was a breeze. We decided to splurge a little for the ryokan and we didn’t regret our choice.
The onsens were fantastic! The one that we tried in Takayama is nothing compared to Hakone. 😛 We went to the onsen a total of 3 times in that short stay. 🙂 To top it off, after a relaxing and therapeutic time at the onsen, there were lots of products for pampering ourselves. 🙂
Dinner and breakfast were part of the package and they were good! We’re going to let the pictures speak for themselves…
