If you are regular visitor to Japan, you know that Japan is really humid, especially in rainy seasons.
Some of you will say that you like to visit to Japan in spring to see beautiful cherry blossoms, or in summer to join japanese traditional festivals, or maybe in winter to see grand beauty of Mt. Fuji with snow on top of it.
However there are still so many things that you SHOULD try in Japan!

‘What you can do in Japan in rainy seasons’.
This is today’s topic. What will you think about?
Nothing? NOOOOOOO.

I’m going to tell you what you can do,
it is ‘to go to onsen’! (Onsen means ‘hot spring’)
Atami city is one of the BEST onsen places in Japan.
Atami city is in Shizuoka prefecture, and it’s close to Mt. Fuji.
The city is surrounded by mountains and ocean, and many kinds of flowers bloom through all the seasons.

There are many places where you can go and have onsen.
Now I would like to tell you few onsen that I recently have gone to.

1. Nikko-tei, Oyu

This Atami onsen has a long history since Edo period. It is said that Ieyasu Tokugawa,who was a shogun, used to come all the way to Atami from Tokyo to have onsen.
Onsen is really hot and nice, and they even have small Tatami room for you to have a rest after having onsen!

2. Mikan no ki

This onsen is in a small ryokan hideaway. You will find out the story of ‘Kaguya-hime’ inside Ladies’ onsen room. There are both inside and outside onsen. You cannot see great view from outside one, but somehow to see onsen come down through rocks made me feel relaxed.

3. Oedo Onsen
Some of you might already know about this hotel. It’s a chain hotel, and they have a big, kind of an amusement park onsen in Tokyo as well. Onsen was hot and nice, and I could see an island from outside onsen.

One day our guests asked me how Japanese people enjoy onsen.
The answer would be:
1. if we are staying at a place for one night, we will have onsen at night and next morning.
2. go out and enjoy it at different places.

Come to see us in Atami!

梅雨時の熱海。
おすすめは温泉を巡り、街をブラブラ歩き、のんびりすること。
雨と緑の匂いが新鮮な気持ちにさせてくれます。

今回ご紹介するのは立ち寄り湯ができる場所。
ご存知の方も多いと思いますが、熱海はなにせ坂が多い。そのおかげで有名な温泉地へとなったわけではありますが、散策をしていると途中で汗も流したくなる所。
そんな時にふらっと入れる温泉があるといいですよね。

1. 日航亭 大湯

徳川家康がお忍びで入っていたと言われている歴史のある日帰り温泉。内湯と露天があり、とっても濃く熱い温泉に癒されます。
畳の休憩所もあり、温泉から上がった後、みなさん大の字でお昼寝されていました。至福のひと時ですね~♪

2.みかんの木

隠れ家的旅館。スタッフの方はみなさん親切で、写真まで撮ってくださいました。こちらも内湯と露天があり、内湯はかぐや姫をイメージした装飾で幻想的に、露天は岩が高く積まれた岩風呂で潔さを感じました。いいお湯をありがとうございました!

3.大江戸温泉

東京・お台場にはカオサンスタッフも大好きなアミューズメント型の温泉がありますね♪ 熱海温泉の大江戸温泉は、内湯・露天があり、露天風呂からは海も見えゆったり温泉を楽しむことができました。とっても気さくなスタッフの方にも出会い、癒されるっていいな~☆と感じました。

ちょっとしたトレーニングをしながらの立ち寄り湯、おすすめです!
