So day two we got up pretty early. Before eight. But that was because someone had been snoring...
We decided to just walk about the hotel a bit (breakfast wouldn't be served untill eight) and we saw all these pictures and paintings hanging in our room and hallway. All of them were Japanese and had a description along with it. When we walked out of our hallway, we saw the door that lead to it had a name that went with the general Japanese theme in the hallway. So we decided to look at the other hallways too. All had different themes, like the mystery and were cultural but also historical.
Downstairs we saw a sign that said they were a museum hotel (which we hadn't know up 'till then) and that, that morning there would be a tour around the hotel.
The nature there is very beautifull. But we were glad we had our Tom or else we wouldn't have found the way back. Some people were trying to get to some special natural spring (of which I really can't recall the name so it musn't be very famous..) but couldn't find it. The directions on the signs were not clear enough. And every time they would get near and then the road would go a different way so they would never get to it.
Other then that there is a Panorama Park. Maarten and me mistaked it for nature park. When we got nearer it was just an amusement park, mostly for children. There are also small towns and great nature to hike about.
Maarten and me discovered it is a good idea though to take along your own amusement because if you aren't much of a hiker, there really isn't that much to do then just sit in the sun (that we luckily had that weekend). It is a good environment for a weekend, but certainly not for a whole week.
At night we had dinner at the hotel. Unfortunately the cook, isn't used to cooking for so many people (as the group was that we came with 30/40+) so we ate pretty late, around seven (which is late for us dutch~!) and others even at eight or eight thirty. Especially since we hadn't eaten anything for lunch (for which nothing was arranged). But that was the only negative thing about dinner. You really had your plate full and it was all good. Definately eat at the hotel~!
Plus the staff there is nice. Some of them spoke dutch. Others were German but they were always friendly and they remember everything so be carefull ;).
