Hotel Kawai-en is a mountain hotel resort. It had a really nice mori no yu which is a private onsen with the sexes separated.
They had owls...
I can't believe they allowed me to stay in their lovely hotel with my Dr. Fate shirt on.
Yuka-san and I had a wonderful buffet brunch and hit the hot tub water park called Yunessun. They had all these crazy huge onsen hot tubs with different smells: coffee, green tea, sake, strawberry wine and original recipe. Plus, they had water slides, roman baths, a huge inside onsen that had a rain storm every 60 minutes and a foot path of destruction. None of which I took pictures of. You have to take Cousin Pete's word for it.
The green tea onsen was the best!
Why did I take pictures of the signs? Well... cameras were discouraged inside the water park.
Once I left my board shorts smelled funky like Bootsy Collins' bass riffs in the 70's. I think it was the pizza onsen that did it.
