Experienced the biggest earthquake of my life. It was scary enough in Tokyo but nothing serious here. Please pray for those who are injured and damaged in the Tohoku area, Miyagi/Fukushima/Iwate. Thank you.
It's been almost 4 years since I started this Onsen Blog! Thanks to all! I realized that it's been an one-way flow of information from my side so for a change, I made an another onsen blog which will need help from the onsen fans around the world. It will be a very simple blog. I will just post the onsen pictures and that's it. I am curious to know which onsens people visit most! I am sure that I will receive many onsen pictures that I have never been to! Please send the pictures to sonoea(at)gmail.com . Thanks!
