aoni onsen

10

Spent the weekend relaxing with some good friends. We stayed the night at Aoni onsen in Kuraishi. It’s a beautiful, traditional style onsen/inn with no electricity or phone service. The rooms, hallways, and all of the baths are lit by lanterns, and the stay includes a very Japanese style dinner and breakfast. There are four different baths around the inn, three of which have separate areas for men and women. The rotenburo(open air bath) is mixed gender, but has a ladies only time for any women who aren’t comfortable with that (sorry men, you just have to hope no ladies come while your there, if you’re not into that).
It was a great experience, and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Aomori.
