On the weekend, my family and I went to Kinugawa Onsen to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday!!!
Kinugawa Onsen (鬼怒川温泉) is a popular hot spring resort in the city of Nikkō, Tochigi, Japan. It is located 2 hours by train from Tokyo. BTW, Bento on the train is nice! We always get it at a department store. Not Ekiben! hehe
Not many but there are some amusements such as Tobu World Square (東武ワールドスクエア) and Nikko Edomura (日光江戸村) theme parks.
Here are some souvenirs from the places we went!!!
Tobu World Square (東武ワールドスクエア):
A theme park with more than 100 famous sites from around the world, in 1/25th of the original sizes. You can also enjoy nighttime illumination from 12/1-3/2. It is freezing cold though. haha
Tom and Maimu Colorful Print Cookies (カラフルプリントクッキー)
Kinugawa Confectionery Castle (鬼怒川お菓子の城):
You can taste and buy all sorts of popular Wagashi (traditional Japanese confections) from Kinugawa. It is not a castle-like place, but they have great freshly made sweets!
#1 ごま・胡麻クッキー (Sesame Seed Cookies)
#2 胡麻まんじゅう (Sesame Seed Manjyu)
#3 かりんとうまんじゅう (Deep-Fried Brown Sugar Manjyu)
#4 チーズケーキ (Cheesecake)
#5 塩羊羹 (Salty Yokan)
Nikko Hanaichi-Monme (日光花いちもんめ):
Begonias and more than 600 varieties of flowers are full in bloom all year round. You can also enjoy strawberry picking! I found a Hello Kitty strawberry XD
Strawberry Curry (いちごのカレー) *you can find at any souvenir shop
Tasty Salt for Boiled Egg (ゆでたまごの塩) *you can find at any souvenir shop
マヨネーズ (mayonnaise), 醤油 (soy sauce), 抹茶 (Matcha green tea), ゆず (Yuzu Japanese lemon) and さくら (Sakura cherry blossom).
It goes great with Tempura, fries, salad, meat, fish, rice, pasta, sweets, etc...
Tochigi is known for strawberries. Most souvenirs are in PINK :)
