Kamesei Ryokan's recently completed "Shinano-buro" private outdoor bath is enjoying its first spring. The garden is starting to come alive with a parade of flowers. First the setsubunsou, then the katakurisou (dog tooth violet), now the trillium.
I have to admit, I am partial to trillium. It is native to my place of birth, the Pacific Northwest. I always enjoyed seeing trillium during my hikes in the mountains around Seattle. So I am very pleased to see it now in our new outdoor bath's garden.
You, too, and enjoy it now. Our Shinano-buro is available for use for 45 minute time slots for 2,100 yen. Come and help celebrate its first spring.
