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!

I love onsen, and am founder and president of the “Hello My Onsen” club here in Shimane. That’s really just a fancy name based on a funny typo for a small group of JET participants who go to hot springs around Shimane together. Well, so far our little club has only gotten together once, but even if we don’t go together, we’re united in the spirit of love for hot mineral water and decorative baths! Not to mention good skin, as Shimane is once again rated as the best prefecture for beautiful skin.

EDIT: Just to make sure this isn’t misunderstood out of context, yes, they are gender-seperate! Like I said, this feels so normal to me now that I forget how weird I used to find the idea.
