(not quite a) Year in Japan

Kusatsu (草津), a famous onsen town that 妙子 (Taeko) san very kindly brought us to on a day off. As always, it’s raining, though don’t let that be a reflection of the general weather – we just tended to get days off when it was raining heavily because no-one wants to be in a field for 7+ hours getting drenched.


It was a bit of a whistle-stop tour, but I’m super grateful to Taeko-san for bringing us here as it was an absolutely lovely town. After walking around and perusing the sights, she even treated us to a delicious lunch at a fantastic soba restaurant. And then we took a dip in the natural onsen baths – wonderfully chill day!

I don’t speak German, but “Friendship between Japan and Germany” I think?
