a trip to Noboribetsu, Hokkaido

Nowadays it's very hot even in Hokkaido. It's 30℃ and the humidity is 60% with no fans and no air-conditioning in my room now. I have to take out an electric fan soon.

I went on a trip to Noboribetsu by train. I left home before eight in the morning and I got to Noboribetsu station after 10:30.

The demon is a symbol of Noboribetsu. Because, it is said that demons lived in the hell valley of Noboribetsu.

I got together with my friends at the station and we went to the hotel to leave our baggages. And then we walked around for sightseeing.

The hydrangeas were so beautiful.

Jigokudani, the hell valley has hot springs which have sulfurous smell.

After we saw the hell valley, we went to take a foot bath.

After we had sightseeing, we had lunch at Soba, buckwheat noodles restaurant.
And then we went back the hotel and we swam in the pool.
I had refrained from sweets to wear my swimsuit for this event, but my potbelly didn't become flat sadly.
After that we got into the hot springs. It was spacious and the quality was nice. And then we had dinner. It was a buffet style. There were many kinds of food.

After dinner, we went to see demon's fireworks.

I know the feeling. Maybe it has to do with age? Why didn't I lose more weight when I was younger?

That place looks really nice. I would like to go to those onsen, but I'm really sensitive to sulfur smell.

Hello, just visiting,

Thank you very much for your comment. And I corrected my blog a little as you wrote.
I'll bake again sometime because I finished wearing swimsuit.

The sulfur smell wasn't so strong, but it looked the temperature of hot springs was very high.
