General MacArthur in Kamiyamada?


General Mac

At the hill behind Togura Kamiyamada Onsen, there is a History Museum that has become, err, historical itself. It closed its doors many moons ago, and most of the artifacts have moved on. There are a few interesting statues remaining, though, including ones of Chang Kai Shek and of this guy, General Douglas MacArthur. I had heard stories of him related to Zenkoji Temple in Nagano City, but it’s somewhat bizarre seeing his statue here above our town!

New guest room sink洗面j台改善


Misaki checking out my plumbing work

One of our guest rooms had a leaky sink. In my attempt to repair it, I managed to crack the porcelain. So I went ahead and updated the whole thing, with a cool ceramic bowl, a stylish faucet, and a nice, wood countertop. If guests like it, I plan on updating more bathrooms in the future.
あるお客室の辛苦が水漏れしていました。直してみたら、ひびが入っちゃった。仕方が無い:全部を新しくしました。陶芸なボールを使って、ちょっとしたお洒落な雰囲気になりました。
