Golden Week Adventures 2015 Day 3 (Part 4) Asamushi Hot Spring Resort / ゴルデンウィークアドベンチャー 2015年 三日目(パート4)浅虫温泉街

It was nice of my wife's friend to offer to drive us around today.  And it was nearing lunch time.  So off to Asamushi it was.  We were going to check out the restaurant that my wife says makes a great omurice.  However, she said she was worried that maybe the restaurant isn't there anymore.  When we got to Asamushi, we found the restaurant but unfortunately it was closed.  The only other shop that was open for business that wasn't in a ryokan was a soba shop but it was really crowded so we skipped that place to.  But lucky for us, just outside one of the major souvenir shops was having an outdoor festival so we had festival foods for lunch.


One of the food stalls in the parking lot outside the large souvenir shop.


Lunch!  We had some yakisoba, fried rice, and miso denraku.


We also had some yakitori as well.

And I found an Aomori Prefecture craft beer - Manji Mugishizuku stout.

Me enjoying my Manji Shizuku Stout beer!


After lunch we walked down to the beach. 


That large white building was Asamushi Kanko Hotel which I had stayed at with my wife, mother-in-law and nephew and few years ago.  My wife's friend informed us that it is not longer in business.  That was sad to hear as the room does have a great view of the ocean.


There was one other place in Asamushi that I wanted to go to.  The free foot bath outside Asamushi station.

The water here is really hot.  It takes a little while to get used to before being nice and comfy.

This might give you an idea how hot it was.  I was only soaking my feet for about five minutes.

Before leaving Asamushi, we went into the building and had ice cream!


Our next destination was going to another temple that features the Showa Daibutsu.  We will be heading to Seiryuji.
