Today was good sunny day. It is a good season for walking, driving, and travels. I wish I could go hiking instead of being in long meetings. If I could have a three day weekend, I would go to Onsen!! Here is an English Onsen guide site Onsen and Ryokan of Japan, Ryokan. HOWEVER! Unfortunately, really good Onsen & Ryokan sites tend to have no English version. Actually, my favorite, and I think most dependable site, is Tabieru. They do not have an English page.
Okay in Tabieru, let's have vertual onsen travel now. They do not have video, but they have good slide show. Please click play button.
This is Hidaji in Gifu prefecture.
Asebino in Shizuoka.
Okuhida Choza in Gifu.
Onyado Kawasemi in Fukushima.
Fukumoto in Ohita.
