  • Revoking someone's appearance. And under the bath, in Natsume Soseki. It is not to go near. I think from reading when going to the Matsuyama Botchan and go enjoy.

  • At the entrance of the Dogo hot spring town. From 8:00 up to 10:00 PM work every hour. It is recommended even for adults to look fun, so if you have time, see.

  • In the morning, 1 hour after music, Gizmo moves. Famous overseas but was in the Czech Republic should be compared like that and thank you-yikes. Never, not bad, so if you see a. Just amazing, it's not.
