The First 36 Hours

Whirlwind, yes, whirlwind.  From the fire ceremony of the percussive Buddhist temple on.  Now that’s a sound that would make a killer backdrop to a jazz ensemble or wailing guitars.

Followed by tori niku and unagi.  Oiishi des!

Then a visit to a sake brewery.  I saw an impromptu jazz matsuri across the street and began talking to the young hipster in charge, but got the hook and wound up back at sake.

Next up: Geishas and drinking games minus the ETOH.

I left out the outlet mall.  No: here it is: Outlet Mall.

Evening: A sprawling 260 room resort.  Best bet: The big hot spring baths down below.
