I started off the morning with a trip to Kaminoyama Onsen, and for $1.50 I was able to use the onsen. I ended up chatting with the only two other women in the onsen about my study abroad experience and the cold weather. After soaking for an hour I moved on to see Kaminoyama Castle. The whole town of Kaminoyama is surrounded by beautiful, huge mountains and it is my favorite place I've visited so far! Before catching the train to Yonezawa I stopped by this traditional Japanese sweets shop and got some very fresh matcha tea and a black sesame and peanut flavored dango (mochi) stick. They were the best dango I've had in Japan so far. 😍 After arriving in Yonezawa I had sukiyaki (kind of like hot pot) with delicious slices of Yonezawa beef on top. From there I walked half an hour to get to Yonezawa Castle, which was really more like a bunch of shrines. Since I had two and a half hours to kill before the train arrived I stopped by a cozy cafe and had a really yummy cappuccino. From there I took the train to the final destination of the day, Fukushima. #cantgetenoughofjapan#foodie4life#上山城#上山温泉♨️ #米沢牛🐮 #カプチーノ#おなかいっぱい幸せ
