Sukayu Onsen. Aomori
Onsen Explorer 2.
Saturday 15 June 2019
Everyone is now traveling to Tokyo, or in Tokyo to begin our cycling tour tomorrow at the Sukayu Onsen near Aomori. I hope they like the rotten egg smell of the sulphur springs at the Ryokan.
Meanwhile I am in Tokyo awaiting their arrival, where it has rained all day, as predicted. The forecast is good for the next four days at least. The tour which has just ended has had two weeks of glorious weather, so we are hoping for a repeat of that.
Sunday. 16 June. Sukayu Onsen.
A nice sunny and warm day In Tokyo. Everyone has arrived in Tokyo and flown up to Aomori where it has started to rain and does so all day. After a a bus ride to the station and a good Japanese lunch in Aomori we took the free shuttlebus to the Onsen up in the hills where the rain continues. Having collected our bikes minor adjustments were made, saddles pedals and bags fixed ready for the uphill start tomorrow into the beautiful countryside, that is if visibility is good enough. Put in the Yukata for the night and then a slow burn in
the hot Onsen before dinner to soak away any pains. A briefing from Ken and Aru on tomorrow’s ride and then a typical Japanese banquet before a hard earned sleep for the weary travellers. Rain is forecast until afternoon tomorrow so let’s hope they are wrong.
