One thing I miss from Japan was taking on the weekends or holidays to visit a hot spring (onsen) resort with friends and visitors. To leave town on a train with friends and vistors to often remote and mountainous areas for the hot spring hotel, nestled in hot spring towns selling their own trademark snacks from their region. Then, spend the whole day and night in your yukata, soak in the hot springs, and be served a full traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast. Mark Edward Harris has captured onsen moments throughout Japan and has come out with a second edition of “The Way of the Japanese Bath“. Join him this Saturday for the opening reception and book signing, with an exhibition of his photographs.
