LEVEL 2 AUTHORIZED
While Jude was away, I sent our Spaports to the Tourism Bureau to certify our bathing adventures thus far. By the end of July we had hit 21 onsens which qualifies us for Level 2, the white towel. We also got official stamps in our spaports and official looking certificates. Each level authorization costs 500 yen (4.50) in postage stamps, so it's not much for something so fun. I figure we won't have to "get" every level, but I'll try to get the different colored towels (i think there are 4) at least. If I had a scanner, I 'd show you our stuff, but for now I'll leave it up to your imagination.
