    コロナ騒動でバリ旅行を泣く泣くキャンセル。代わりに近場で人混みのないこちらへ。 車で1時間15分ぐらいかな、以外と近かった。 シーズンオフの平日なのでガラガラ。そのせいなのか、お湯がきれい。掛け流しでない湯舟でも見事に透明。泉質はうわさ通りのトロミ湯で、湯上り肌も上々。室内に浴槽が3つとサウナ、外に露天風呂があります。 シャンプーリンスとボディシャンプー以外にバックも置いてありました。化粧水と乳液...

    粉雪舞う中、たどり着いたのは、ポツンと一軒家風の古めかしい温泉。中に入るとイノシシのはく製がお出向え。雑然としたフロントの昭和感もほどよく、一気に湯舟へと突き進んだ、と言いたいところだけれど、「調理に時間がかかるのであらかじめ予約がおすすめ」と触れ込みのあった釜飯を予約。さて、浴室の扉を開けると目に飛び込んできたのは土色の湯。浸かるとそれほどとろみは強くなく、ここちよりやわらかさ。体がじっくり芯か...

    平日、温泉とランチを体験しました。 今回は、半額キャンペーンで、豪華定食と温泉がセットになっているプランでした。 食事は、田舎ゆえ、期待していなかったのですが、豪華なランチセットでした。 天ぷら、刺身盛り合わせは量が多く、技術もなかなかのものでした。 食事の後の温泉は、PH9を超える、トロトロの湯という事でしたが、循環のためか、塩素がきつすぎるように思いました。サウナあり、露天風呂あり、地元の方の...

Nara Areas

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
