family trip

Every year, my family have a small trip in the end of December. Its aim is mainly to heal our bodies by bathing in "onsen".

This year, we went to "Harazuru-onsen"(原鶴温泉) in Fukuoka prefecture and stayed one night at a hotel. But, I could not enjoy this trip so much because of a severe problem in my family. (However, I am not in the mood for writing about it here.)

I took only above five photos. The first two are the hotel's dishes. And the second three are a honey bottle sold in a souvenir shop in the hotel. It contains a vespinae. The naming is a little bit funny, I think.

命をかけて? That's certainly an interesting naming convention.

I'm sorry to hear that you couldn't enjoy the trip so much, but I hope that you were at least able to refresh yourself well in the onsen.

Sorry to hear about the problem with your family. I hope it improves this year.

Thank you for posting a comment. Yes, certainly, I could refresh my mind and body by using the onsen.

I have some explanation about this term in Japanese.





Thank you for kind comment. I am glad to hear your voice in a long time.

But, I am sorry that I am not able to post a comment because articles in your blog are too special. Of course, I recognize that your field is the edge of technology in "cloud computing".

Wow that bee looks scary! I'm sure it is very good for your health, but I don't think I would like to eat it....
I hope the problems with your family can be worked out soon. I think it is great that you always take a trip with them.
Keep smiling - spring is almost here!
