We rode back down to central Yufuin ...
Horse-drawn carriage rides for tourists in Yufuin
Next we got lunch at a conbini, ate it beside Lake Kinrin,
window-shopped and did some errands -- got groceries and replaced a bolt
that had shaken loose from my rear pannier rack. The big hill up to the
hostel wasn't so hard without panniers.
|... and uphill on the other side to an onsen called
Musoen. This was the busiest onsen to date, with a busload of tourists
just arriving. Rick said the men's bath was unremarkable. The women's bath
was very large, with a great view of Mount Yufu.
For dinner, the hostel staff drove us and one other guest to
an inexpensive restaurant in town. Our companion's English was quite limited
so we just had what she had, chicken with rice, and miso soup.
