day 337 - bali in Japan

The Yutorian, Shuzenji.
Sorry if this a lot like an advertorial, but we really liked this place. It's a sprawling Balinese resort serving traditional ryokan-style food in a 1200 year old onsen / temple village!
The staff had about as much English as we had Japanese, but they were very friendly and anxious to help.

Banana palms.
In summer it would be just like Bali here - mushi atsui!

In autumn we were out of season - but we had a LOT of room to ourselves (including the onsen mentioned yesterday.)

Rob especially liked the bamboo theme, complete with giant bamboo furniture.

Balinese bamboo xylophone.

Rooftop gravel garden.
