On of the weekends many moons back, the Tan Tans and their Japanese friends made a trip to Ryujin Onsen (translated dragon deity hot spring).
The car ride took 3 hours to reach the onsen and everyone was hoping for some onsen manju. However, we discover that this onsen is purely an onsen, i.e no frills, no onsen manju or onsen tamago. ;(

It seems that this ryujin onsen was discovered by Kobo Daishi, who is the same guy who founded Koya-san of Tan Tans’ earlier blog.
Right: The original onsen
