day 182 - Shirahama
Sakino-yu Onsen is one of the oldest hot spring resorts in Japan and - sited on a spectacular rocky outcrop - one of the most beautiful. We both enjoyed luxuriating while enjoying the unspoilt view of the Pacific from a naked Japanese perspective (although we had a separating wall, so there was no opportunity for funny-business.) This shot was taken from the top of the Underwater Observatory Tower. You can try zooming in on the Japanese guy, but you won't see much. [hint: use the toolbar!]

OK, so this is no big deal for you Northern-Hemisphere-types, but it's a novelty for us Antipodean aliens.
