@nn yeah there weren't many western people there
when i went to naruko-onsen (really rural area) some schoolgirls looked really shocked when they saw me haha. it was kinda weird
i live near kyoto and i don't get much attention because of my foreignness there
did you take the last picture at jigokudani monkey park? did you stay in yamanouchi for a night? if yes could you recommend a hotel/ryokan?
i plan to go there in december
i'm not a big fan of udon or...
