Today I decided to take a break from studying and continue posting pictures from my trip to Japan, which was 4 months ago now. Don’t worry though, I’ll get them all up before Christmas :)
Picking up where I left off last time, the day after seeing the incomp…*cough* battle-damaged gundam in Shizuoka, my friends and I headed to Ikaho for a relaxing day at the hotsprings.
Ikaho is a small town in the mountains so there are no trains that run directly there; you have to take the train to Shibukawa and then take a bus to Ikaho. All of the bus routes and maps were in Japanese though, so we had to ask a bus driver which bus to take (luckily he understood English). A few hours after leaving Tokyo, we made it to Ikaho in one piece and were greeted with the above sign. Personally, I found it strange that they used the American flag for the English section rather than the British flag. Whenever I’ve travelled to Europe and other parts of Asia, they’ve always used the British flag.
