Our little onsen town; the base of our 3 day adventure on the Kumano Kodo. The therapeutic and regenerative quality of the water outweighed its stink factor oh so many times over. Bathing naked outdoors in a natural hot spring especially post an arduous hike is inescapably transformative!

Our ryokan

A thermal bath for a almost anything you want to boil... Though mainly eggs and yams

Our eggs are cookin'

Our hostess handing me our eggs right before we hopped on the bus for our next adventure

Where we bathed...ahem, in the nude...outdoors under a canopy of leaves

The End
