So I went to Hakone last weekend.It’s actually a really big Japanese tourist spot, but it’s not the kind of place most folks who haven’t lived here have heard of. Ergo lots of Japanese tourists and not too many gaijin.

I stayed at a lovely little ryukan (Japanese Dinner, Bed and Breakfast) with three onsen (hot baths, loosely) on site. Pretty cool. To be honest, sleeping on the floor on a futon is really comfortable but the low table thing and sitting on the floor will take a little getting used to.
