One weekend in October we went to a famous onsen town in Gunma called Ikaho. One of the reasons it is famous is that the old part of town consists of a long staircase up the side of a mountain, with all the onsen and shops and restaurants lining it. It is a bit of a walk, but really gorgeous scenery!
We started out at my favorite ramen shop, Barikiya, in Takasaki before heading out to Ikaho
After exploring, we found a place to take a bath and relax, and then happily headed home!
