Let's continue the Japan trip with my friends in April! ^_^
We took the 箱根ロープウェイ(ropeway) from 大涌谷駅 to 早雲山駅(this part of ropeway is still in service):
Then we took 箱根登山ケーブルカー(cable car) to 強羅駅...
and took 箱根登山電車 to 箱根湯本駅:
On the way back to hotel:
夜桜 is so beautiful!
Dinner at hotel:
we think that this night's dinner is better than last night!
Dessert is delicious strawberry!
I bought something at 箱根オルゴール館, including this bag:
I love the graphic very much! hehehe...I think the little cat looks like the cat that always passing through my garden ne! :P
大涌谷 noodle and something for 小狼 too:
小狼 tried on the new jacket:
kekeke...this jacket is originally a product for teddy bear! so lucky, it's so suitable for him! ^0^
We went to take 露天風呂 before sleep...and before that, we took some photos at the hotel lobby, 4 of us in 浴衣 look:
There is one thing that we can't imagine! When we went to the 露天風呂(at night time, it's supposed to be the time only for Female to use), we saw a family including an old woman, a mother with a son(looks like 7-10 years old) & a baby inside the area, they're taking off their clothes at the moment...well, we can't accept there's a boy taking onsen together with us, impossible! I asked the mother, why the son didn't go to the public onsen together with his father?! (actually b4 we went to 露天風呂, we've been to the lobby at ground floor, I saw this family! and the father went into the public onsen...male side) Then the mother said her son is only 8 years old, and in japan, children(a boy) under the age of 10, can go to female onsen! What a strange culture?! we can't imagine...anyway, we told the family that we'll wait until they finish...hahaha...so lucky that they took the onsen quickly, and after that we can go inside and enjoy the whole 露天風呂 4 of us! btw, after that I asked my husband about this strange culture, is it really true?(I wondered if the mother told lies to us! :P) my husband said yes, it's true! OMG...can't believe! -_-||| (let's think of similar case, e.g. toilet...I don't think a 8 years old boy will go into the female toilet lor!)
小狼 with japanese snack & tea:
We picked 4 pieces of stone from the 露天風呂 secretly...haha! I got the upper right one!
