So, nice drive to the resort.. about another 60 km or so... very quiet town, arrive around 4 pm.. we pre-booked the resort which was $160 (including buffet breakfast/dinner) we all had a quick spa/sauna before dinner.
For those that don't know, for Japanese Onsen/spa, you must be naked (no togs allowed) *or maybe Steve made that rule up, so he could steal a glimpse of Dick's willy??
OK.. 5 pm Beer O' clock!
Steve speaks fluent Japanese and has assumed the role of leader.. he's got our first round of beer - before we even sit down. He informs us that beer is free on tap, until 7 pm...
Yup... He's a beer slut all right... GO STEVE!
