A Weekend Vacation to Hakone Part II!!
What I love about going to onsen is the massage chair!! It is so expensive to buy and it is too expensive to go to spa every weekend to get professional massage. The picture below is the massage chair that my best friend and I totally adored. The machine was set for 15 minutes and automatically massages entire body. Yeah, my friend and I acted like ojisan/obasan (middle age man and woman) spent quite some time there. Hahaha
Going to onsen/ryokan also comes with great Japanese food! Although our room attendant seems little slow with her work; brought rice and miso soup when tempra and all hot dishes got cold, the food was great. I also enjoyed little ume-wine that was served before the meal (Usually Ume-shu, Plum-Japanese sake is well known, but it was Plum-wine!!) After the meal, we also had a sakura-ice cream/cheery blossom ice cream, which was the highlight of the meal for the night.
