Katsuura Onsen!

The second stop of our trip was actually our main purpose of the trip. The ONSEN!! For this, we went to one of the hotel with Nanki Katsuura hot springs. Hotel Nakanoshima. It is the only hot spring on an island in Japan!

Well, we definitely needed a ferry to reach the island and look at the cute ferries below:




And a satisfied Mrs Tan Tan after the nice onsen.

Oh well, what do you expect? Of cos it was impossible for me to take photographs in the onsen right. And I was enjoying every minute of it with no camera on hand. Just to be clear, it wasn't a mixed onsen (disappointed...) and there were just me with 2 other ojisans in the open-air onsen (rotenburo).

But it felt great! The onsen directly faced the sea and one could enjoy the panoramic sea views while soaking. Definitely very very therapeutic and outstanding!!
