Last onsen bath

It's morning and after a wonderful sleep, we woke up hesistant for our day to end - the last day of our onsen weekend.
We left our room in our yukata and went to have breakfast. Again a buffet and this time with various types of dishes, typical of Japanese breakfast. We made a reservation for one of the private rotemburos but we still had time before our scheduled time so we walked around after breakfast. The shops were opening and some people were enjoying the wonderful morning.
When it was our time for the private rotemburo, we were slow in acclimating to the water. It was very HOT! Even as we got used to it, we couldn't stay in the water too long before jumping out to cool off and going back in again. In the end, we only used 30 mins of the 45 mins given to us for the private rotemburo because we couldn't take the heat.
Instead, we headed to the top floor where the indoor baths were located and had another long bath and soak before checking out.
We took a cab to the bus station where we were to take the direct bus to Shinjuku. It was still early - an hour left before the bus arrives so we headed to one of the popular manju stores in Ikaho. I bought a few, of course. I just love manju! We still had time leftover so we had some light lunch before the bus finally arrived.
We slept the entire 3 hour bus ride back to Tokyo.
