February Long Weekend: Yugawara Onsen

Every weekend should be a long weekend. Makes the working week so much more bearable.
Last weekend was one such long weekend and a friend’s birthday so it was a perfect excuse for an onsen weekend with friends at Yugawara onsen (only 1.5 hours away from Tokyo).

This is how you ride the train in style – with champagne in hand:

We stayed at a really nice ryokan. I thought these silhouettes were cool.

Appetisers – had romanesca for the first time. Romanesca is basically the lovechild of broccoli and cauliflower.

It was a leisurely weekend of food, champagne and onsens. And we spent two nights there, which was rather indulgent of us. I have to make the most of long weekends this year (have very little annual leave up my sleeve).
