For P's birthday, went with her and the grommets and jiji and baba to Myojinkan in Nagano. Raining on Saturday when we got up there, but didn't matter since we spent the afternoon lounging in the baths and eating.
Sunday the weather was perfect (hot actually) and we checked out Matsumoto Castle and the Annual Soba Festival held every year on the castle grounds.
Back to the onsen for another killer dinner and more bathing, then came home on Monday.
Highlights: view from the top of the castle, Nagano apples, Mookun walking around in slippers, grapes, apples, oyaki...food in general!
