Overnight Trip to Gotemba & Hakone (Part 4) / 御殿場・箱根一泊旅行 (パート4)

I suppose you were all wondering when I was going to continue my posts about our overnight trip to Gotemba and Hakone. After dinner we enjoyed the onsen of course (which was most awesome but not a place to take pictures). Afterwards, we bought some snacks and beer (of course) and just had a pleasant evening. In the morning, we enjoyed a breakfast buffet (part of our package deal) and then it was off to Hakone. But before that, we decided to walk around the neighborhood. Endo-san's girlfriend had to go to work so it was just me, Mikako and Endo-san on our little driving tour.

一泊旅行のつづき忘れてませんよ。夕飯の後は楽しみの温泉。(残念ながら、温泉内は写真撮ってません)。お風呂上がりはやっぱりビールとおつまみ。朝はブレクファストの食べ放題 (宿代に含まれてました)。今日は箱根を堪能する予定。今日も晴れてたので、食べたあとにちょっと散歩。

Mt. Fuji / 富士山

There was a little shrine at the top of this hill so we went to check that out as well. It was the Haniwa Shrine. What's a haniwa? It's a kind of ceramic art that originated in the 3rd century (of course I had to look that up). Apparently, you make your own haniwa near this shrine.

Love the domed-shaped onsen in the large Dome Village / ドーム型の温泉可愛い

Pet Hotel in the Dome Village

Sign on the Pet Hotel says "We are very sorry, but we cannot accommodate lions".

Okay, so we still haven't left for Hakone.
