JPN DAY10: Onsen, fake eyelash and Coffee Milk

One-day Onsen (hot spring) trip with my three ex-colleague friends!
前職の仲良しGirls 3人で日帰り温泉旅行!

Our destination today was to Tenzan in Hakone, Naotaco's recommendation.
Only one and half hour away from Shinjuku.
There are six outside & inside baths in this amazing Onsen。
なおたこのお勧めで、箱根の天山湯治郷へ。新宿からたった1時間半。
内湯、外湯合わせた6つのお風呂がある素敵温泉です。

I thought about taking a bath, as a most wonderful culture of my country.
by seeing the steam coming out, and breathing out, I release all the daily stress and worries to the air.
by observing naked adults and children, I feel much closer to the people unknown.
by feeling warm and comfortable, I find myself singing in the bathtub.
by running milk coffee in my thirsty throat after the bath, I hydrate and rebirth again.
お風呂に入ることって、とっても素晴らしい日本の文化だと思った。
温泉の湯気を眺めて、ため息ついて、日頃の疲れや悩みを空に離したり
色んな大人や子供の裸を見て、他人との親近感をもったり
ぽかぽかいい気分になって、いい歳で鼻歌なんて歌ってしまったり
入浴後の乾いた喉にコーヒー牛乳を流して、生きてるって潤いを感じたり。

After bath, Minitaco was trying fake eyelash for the first time.
お風呂をあがってから、みにたこは初めて付けまつげに挑戦しました。


slowly, fully, peacefully.
this pace is the neatest, at this moment.

ゆっくり、たっぷり、のんびり。
このペースが、今は一番いい感じ。

the big crab we ate that night!
この夜みんなで食べた蟹!
