Minakami Onsen


I visited Minakami in Gunma to enjoy onsen(hot spring) and red color of leaves.I took an express train from Ueno around two hours and had some local lunch bento-box in a train. It was a really pleasant time : )

I arrived Minakami in the early afternoon and went out for a walk to Suwa ravine where was a very famous place for a wonderful view of colored autumn leaves. It was just 10 min walk from a ryokan which we stayed. We really enjoyed walking and seeing beautiful leaves there about for one hour : )

After that, we returned to ryokan and took onsen. It was amazing,,,! There were so many kinds of onsen in the ryokan such as big open air bath, private open air bath, crystal bath, cave bath, jacuzzi and so on. I really really enjoyed it : )

Meals were also very nice. We had nice shabu shabu and a griled red king crab for dinner and beautiful Japanese breakfast next morning.

We went to a local market near the ryokan next day and bought some local products.

When we got to the Minakami station, it was rainning slightly and a beautiful rainbow in the sky,,,!!
Visiting onsen is the best way to enjoy Japanese autumn and winter! : )
