Japan Trip Day 13

Our last day in Yonezewa we squeezed in some fun things. Mari and Toshiyuki wanted to take us to a natural hot spring bathhouse “Onsen.” The two big guys weren’t keen on the idea of naked bathing together, even if it is separated by gender, so we split up into two groups.

Toshiyuki took the big guys out on the town. They got to visit a shrine and try out the foot onsen…

Typically photos are not permitted inside the onsen but it was empty so I snuck a few. It is super hot! I had a hard time adjusting and Lotus ended up playing with a shower head and a hose next to the bath instead of getting in.

The water is nice and it was relaxing. Simon was like a new person afterward! So chill.

Time to head out on the bullet train again. This cow is at the train station…like I said, the town is known for its prized beef.

Life is pretty chill on the train. It is such a smooth ride…

We made it to our final apartment in Tokyo and it was a real treat! Three bedrooms and a big living room and kitchen, all on the ground floor. I didn’t have to worry about the kids stomping or jumping too loudly.
