My 12-day trip through Japan in January of 2019 was one of the most magical travel experiences I ever had. I visited stunning historical and cultural marvels, explored three of the country’s biggest cities, toured beautiful natural wonders, and met lots of amazing new friends along the way! Come join me on my latest Japanese adventure!
My next Japanese adventure began at the Owakundani Valley in Hakone, Japan. This is a volcanic area that is known for their sulfuric hot springs. They’re famous for their black eggs, which I couldn’t wait to try!
The eggs here turn black when they’re cooked in the sulfuric hot springs. You can get 5 for 500 Yen, or roughly $4.50 U.S. They say if you eat one of these eggs, you’ll add seven years to your life!
They give you a little bit of salt to sprinkle on the eggs. They were actually really delicious!
In addition to the eggs, there’s also a huge souvenir shop where you can buy things like chocolate, sake, golden cats, and lots of other items.
Our next stop was the Hakone Open-Air Museum, which boasts grounds encompassing 70,000 square meters and over a thousand sculptures and works of art by artists from all over the world, including Picasso, who has an entire exhibition hall dedicated to his work.
The museum is beautiful! There are so many incredible sculptures and fascinating exhibits. There’s also an area that’s popular with kids, including a net they can climb! There’s also a maze that reminded me of the one from Harry Potter!
There’s also a heated foot bath, which was so relaxing. Afterward, my feet felt great! I had been walking on them for days!
If you love art, you have to go to the Hakone Open-Air Museum! It’s a must-visit!
Then it was time to go to our hotel, the Hakone Kowakidani Onsen Mizunooto, and get some dinner. My room was an amazing mix of Western and Japanese accommodations. It had Japanese-style flooring and a little table as well as two twin beds and a small kitchen. The bathroom was really nice, with a separated and high-tech toilet. They also give you traditional robes to wear for dinner, which I love!
After I got dressed, I went to the restaurant, which had tables with grills set into them. You grill your fish and meat to your liking. I started with a dry sake along with a mixed appetizer plate that contained blowfish skin, tofu, crab, bean, lotus flower, and more.
The tofu with soybean was really tasty and the salad with blowfish skin was like a refreshing coleslaw. There was a crispy crab biscuit and the chicken with poppyseed had a nice texture. The fish cake with salmon was chewy and I loved the monkfish liver. The dried persimmon with cheese looked like a dessert, and the fried lotus flower was super crunchy and felt like tempura.
Next was four types of sashimi with a miso glaze and some sake. The salmon with seaweed went great with the miso mustard, which was similar to a honey mustard. Then I had some sebring, which was incredible with the soy sauce and wasabi I’d mixed together. There was another seabring with a strong herb and carrots. Then I went with the yellowtail!
Then it was time for the things to grill: beef, fish, scallops, shrimp, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and mushrooms. I went with some cod and yam. The yam was like a mashed potato and the cod, or bacalao, was one of my favorites!
First up was grilled trout, which was like butter with the soy sauce. The scallop was also very nice. The Brussels spouts were super fresh and tasty with only salt and pepper. After that, I went with the spring onion and shrimp.
Next was the wagyu beef and duck, which had some nice fat on it. The duck was a bit too rare, but the fat was very nice and the beef was ridiculously good! The salmon roe with gelatin was also incredible and the mushrooms were nice and moist!
The dried sweet potato was incredible and the pork was outstanding. Then I went with some mackerel, more wagyu beef, and sticky sebring rice with herbs and a spicy glaze. The rice was pretty fishy and a little burnt, but nice.
Then, for dessert, we had a type of Jell-O with citrus that was almost like a crème brulee or flan. It was an amazing dinner all around!
I hope you enjoyed coming along for my epic day in Hakone! If you did, please give it a thumbs up, leave me a comment, and subscribe to my channel!
