Goodbye Noboribetsu. Goodbye big Oni

These kinda statues were everywhere in town. This was the biggest.


One last ryokan breakfast

Just one more shot of food. We had to get out of here before we got used to it, and never left. I am sorry we couldn’t get you a photo of the outdoor onsen that Steve went to in snowfall after breakfast. That morning, at around 6:30am, the temperature was a bracing minus sixteen.
