25th Anniversary trip to Hakone--February 2016

25th Anniversary trip to Hakone
February 2016

Michael took Lisa on an anniversary trip to Hakone--
a city famous for hot springs or onsen.

Our ryokan. We had our own hot spring tub in our room.

Delicious fish dinner in the restaurant. We got to wear our bathrobes (yukatas) to dinner. It was fabulous!

Downtown Hakone. Very Zen.

Enjoying the Hakone Open Air Museum

Life imitates art.

 Art makes us happy!

And sometimes serious.

Flying is a prevailing theme. . .

What? There's someone behind me?

A whole building full of Picasso! Fabulous!

Japan pirates. Awesome!

BIG Tory gate!

Hooray for snow!!

The bakery has an OUTDOOR FOOT BATH! 
Best place to eat a pastry.

Lisa's favorite tatami mat.

Our own private onsen mineral bath. Sooo nice!

A heated table with attached blankets. Cozy.

Time to say good-bye. It was a wonderful Anniversary!

Christmas 2015

I'm determined to start blogging again, so I'll publish this blog that I started last year. No words, just pictures. It was a good Christmas.
