Took a 2 day trip up to snowy Nikko, allowing ourselves to soak  in outdoor hot springs until we emerged again in a prune like state. The scenery was picturesque, I felt as though I was staring out at a desktop background! We constantly munched on local delicacies, including horse meat? (Should that even be legal?), and lounged all day in colourful cotton yukatas. If possible, I think I've fallen in love all over again with frothy green tea! Now back in the city, I miss the rustic ryokan setting, but also extremely eager to get back to Hong Kong and pack my bags for Melbourne!
