206 cm !

Guests from America 🙂 They are very friendly. One of them, he is the tallest guest I’ve ever met here !
I’m 171 centimeters tall and he is 206 centimeters tall. Talking to a person who is 35 cm taller than me is very very rare experience for me 🙂 Hahaha

Everywhere in the house (Japanese style one), he has to stoop his head but it seems he already got used to it !

Thank you for staying with us. Have a wonderful trip in Japan !


アメリカからの、とてもフレンドリーなお客さまと(^^)

写真の通り、とても背の高い彼は、なんと身長206cm!私がここで出会ったお客さまの中で一番背が高いお客さまに認定です(^o^)

日本家屋である当館では、あちこちで頭がぶつかりそうで心配でしたが、もう慣れていらっしゃるようでした。とてもスムーズに中腰で歩いていました(笑)

また遊びに来てくださいね!
引き続き、良い旅を〜(^^)

Season of KAKI 柿の季節♪

ぐっと冷え込んでいる箱根・仙石原です。吐く息は真っ白、温泉の湯気はもくもく、空には星がよく見えます☆
冬がもう、すぐそこなんだなーと感じます。
さて、この季節に美味しいのが柿ですね!私は今朝、甘〜く熟した柔らかい柿をたくさんいただきました(^^) 免疫力アップ!に良いそうですよ。

また、枝付きの柿をデコレーションとして、玄関のところに置いてみました♪

柿と言えば、日本原産と言われている果物。(中国から渡来したという説もあるそうです。いずれにしても東アジア原産ということですね)

16世紀ごろにポルトガル人が日本からヨーロッパに柿を持って帰り、広まったようです。なんと、欧米でも KAKI という日本語発音そのままの名前で売られているんだそうですよ!

寒い冬が来る前に、秋の味覚をたっぷり楽しんでおきたいですね(^^)


Have you ever tried KAKI which is Japanese fruit ?

It’s also called Japanese persimmon in English, but usually it’s called KAKI which is same as Japanese pronoun citation in many countries in Europe and America.

It’s said that some Portuguese brought KAKI to Europe from Japan in 16th century so the name of KAKI still remains even now in foreign countries.

KAKI is representative fruit in autumn season in Japan.
I ate ripe sweet KAKI in this morning. It was so delicious !! Ripe Kaki improves body’s immune system. In Japan, we say “Eating Kaki keeps the doctor away” !

Chilly winter is around the corner. Eating Kaki is good for not catching a cold, I think 🙂

Also we use some of KAKI as a decoration as a photo shows !

“Hot springs” talks with an American guest

Today I enjoyed talking to an American guest who lives in Japan.
It was the second time for him to stay at the hotel I work in, he told me he really liked our place, especially the “hot spring”.
He is a big fan of the hot springs in Japan, having ever tried many hot springs so far.
He loved our hot spring because it is a natural sulfer spring and a turbid hot spring.
He talked to me about how great and how comfortable it was.
I also told him how valuable it is to enjoy such a good hot spring privately at a reasonable price.

At the end of our conversation about ” hot springs ” , he taught me there is a good hotel which also has a natural sulfer hot spring in California.
He said he returns to stay there when he goes back to the United States.

I checked the website of the hotel, Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort.

It seems really gorgeous !
I never thought there was such a good hot spring resort in the United States.

If I had the chance to visit California, I would love to stay at this hotel !

Do you have nice hot spring resorts in your country ?
