-･- From My Everyday Life to Japanese Culture -･- Why don't you see the real Japan, not the typical foreigners' version.
I went to Hakone (箱根), one of the most popular hot spring resorts in Kanto area, for last weekend.
I awoke at 4 o'clock in the morning with hunger because I only had a light early evening meal the day before. I had a sweet bean paste bun, a treat from the hotel, and then soaked in a hot spring at ease.
When I passed through the empty hotel lounge after taking a bath, the morning glow had started out under the rain clouds.
When it was light enough, I saw autumn leaves and foggy mountains.
The leaves are at their peak color in Hakone.
