Our Ryokan With Fresh Snow
The next morning we came out to a fresh coat of snow. Today was our train day so I couldn't do much with it.

Hotel Nook
When we arrived they set up Tea and we settled in. Every room has a nook where a piece of art or flowers are kept.

Bedding With Night Light
I like the classical style night light. There were two bulbs inside - a small bulb (maybe 40 watts), and then a tiny night light (maybe 5 watts). The light was so very warm.

Foyer
This is a traditional entrance - you remove your shoes in the stone area and change into slippers for the wood area. Those slippers are later removed when you get to your room.

Clothes For Ryokan
The maid brought out this paper package that had our yukatas in it. She held them up to ensure they were the correct size. This was the only time we saw tanzen (outer jacket for warmth in the fall/winter). Andrea's set came with three obi (belts) - but our maid helped us through that. Tabi socks were included.

Our Hotel at night

I was amazed we could find our hotel at all - what pass for a street in Kyoto wouldn't make the map
in Vancouver.  The hotel was called "Heianbo" - it is a traditional inn with a traditional bath, traditional rooms,
and modern plumbing!

Hotel in Nikko

This is my room in the Turtle Inn Nikko. The floors are tatami - rice mats. That box
in the corner is a kerosene heater - there is no central heating.
