しらさぎ苑温泉 [SHIRASAGI-EN HOTSPRING]
We stayed overnight at SHIRASAGI-EN hot spring hotel. With heavy snow forecast for the night, it’s the perfect temperature to enjoy a dip in the hot spring. SHIRASAGI is actually a name of a white bird, in English we call it a Egret, part of the heron family.
the hot spring hotel is located in Yasugi a small town in Shimane Prefecture. Yasugi is mainly known for the Dojousuki Dance (see it here on youtube). A dojou is actually a small fish, related to the clown fish or the loach. It is very tasty when fried.
Chisato’s signature pose, actually this is how she poses after coming to a rest from Crawling.
Dinner is served
We added sukiyaki to the menu
Yummm… Fried loach. どじょう。
After dinner we take a nice long leisure bath and dip in the hot spring. We do the same in the morning before breakfast
Our rental car covered i snow
Time for a little play in the snow
And time for me to take a few snaps around the place
