One of the true joys of this trip was for two of the three nights we stayed at onsen, japanese hot springs. There is nothing so satisfying as soaking it a hot spring after a loong day of touring Japan. In this onsen/hotel we stayed in a very traditional room with tatami mats and futons on the floor and yukata. In this picture I am modeling the hotel's yukata. Actually the Japanese aren't used to seeing foreginers wearing yukata I guess...they kept staring at me the hole time.
