I'm enjoying this outing a lot. I didn't think sitting around in what the Japanese call the onsen is very relaxing. One of the attractions here are these large, porcelain jars that you sit in. It's a little cramped for me, but I like huddling inside, and one of the attendants put milk in the water. It was really interesting.
The clothes that they have us wear -- yukata, was it? -- it's very comfortable. I might buy some when we get back to Namimori, although I can't use it when working. The sleeves will probably get caught in the machines. Overalls are still the best.
The water is strange -- I might take some home to test. If I try it on Gola, will Gola rust?
