I am currently on vacation and will return to reply to comments and provide new content later. Until then, please enjoy an excess of doodles and comics about my daily life in the San’in region. See you in mid January!

Just so it’s clear–this wasn’t at a hotel, but a local center with a public bath, it’s highly unlikely you’d see anything unless you happen to be looking at the windows (which I was, seeing as I was still new to the area and observing everything). Even then, it was just a shadow. Don’t need to be afraid to use the onsen! Unless you’re really, really far out in the mountains somewhere, but I have no such experiences to speak of.
