#75: Kamioka Onsen

This is an ancient little mom and pop store that is barely big enough for you and mom (or pop). They also happen to run an onsen/mud onsen. I was not prepared to bathe Jude in mud, then wash him off so I chose the bath instead. The corridor stunk of cats and the bath itself looked like it hadn't been remodeled since 1942. In fact there was a big plaque stating that the onsen was most effective on "after-effects of the atomic bomb."
Must be good. Aside from the cat smell, it was not as bad as some.

ooh, cats, Eric would sneeze his head off. I'd be a little leery of that one, except cats don't seem too inclined to go in the water.

For 50 yen you have to be prepared for the worst
