Yufuin - a town famous as one of the best of hot-spring resorts in Japan. For the hot-spring we went, early December last year.
As luck would have it, it rained the whole day on the second day we were there. Just like what happened at Bessho Onsen in 2010. We wanted to go sightseeing around the onsen resort town but heavy rain thwarted our plan. Two hot-spring resorts, two years in a row!
Good thing the rain was reduced into a drizzle and we just make do with a stroll around the town area, walking from our hotel towards Yufuin Station.
I was tempted to buy one of those colourful umbrellas, but it'll be hard to lug a souvenir umbrella around! Our cheap transparent umbrella was enough to keep us dry from the rain anyway. ^^
Notice what the woman was looking at? It's a place where a certain feline is worshiped. ;)
