Photography at Sumatakyo Onsen, Japan (2021)

I was planning to go on a hot spring trip.

On Friday afternoon, I went on a day trip to the hot springs.

I parked my car in the mountains and walked a few miles to the desired hot spring.

I had food, water, and towels.

The day I arrived at the river, I drank water.

I drank lots of water and survived the heat.

The wind was starting to blow.

It was a cool breeze.

At the end of the trail, I went to a hot-spring house and drank water again.

Then I bathed in a hot spring.
