Hakone I: Hot Springs (Onsen 温泉)

One of the most majestic experiences of my life was spent in the gorgeous pool of the Hakone Hisui with my grandma (祖母), as she swam quietly back and forth. The indoor pool was surrounded completely by a glass wall, so while we swam, we were mesmerized by the breathtaking view of pristine and peaceful green foliage and mist that morning in Hakone, Japan. We had gone to celebrate our grandpa’s (祖父) 88th birthday. To get there, we rode the Odakyu Romance car and also a local train that took us in zig-zags up the mountain to the Hakone Hisui resort.
