  1. Looks like Hana had a blast in the snow! Sounds like the sansai pickers heavily outnumbered the hikers. Did you have a dip in the huge bath at Sukayu Hot Spring?

  2. My wife went in Sukayu onsen while I was climbing, but said the water was very acidic and painful in the eyes, hence the kanji for Su of Sukayu. When I came down, in spite of the attractions of mixed bathing, I couldn’t face the hoards of tour coaches and cars outside the onsen, so we headed further down the valley, where I found a wonderful local onsen for Yen 200, with *only* local people there, coming to clean themselves after working in the rice fields. In fact, right outside that local onsen, there were hoses and scrubbers for the farmers to use – perfect for me and the dog too!
