fallen leaves and snow -- December at Kamesei

December in Onsen Town Togura-Kamiyamada is a time of falling leaves and first snow fall. Two holidays make the month special -- Christmas and New Years. But there was no time to slow down, with my usual pursuit of 'Inbound' and research on activities, restaurants and places to introduce to our guests. We also had some new developments for our new family bath.
