Discover Kinosaki: New Year Breakfast + Train Ride

Day 5

January 1, 2013

Kinosaki Onsen


Hello! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year to all! Anyway, I though of sharing this post today because it happened last January 1, 2013 (New Year) in Kinosaki, Japan.

In my previous post, I related about the loud banging on our door early in the morning. It was one of the chambermaids. Really?! I can't believe she would be knocking at 7 in the morning. We thought we scheduled the breakfast at 8am... darn!

 our impossible to finish breakfast

While one chambermaid was busy rolling away the futon bed, the other one was busy preparing and setting up our breakfast laid out on top of the tatami mat. The tray you see above is just for one person.

For a closer look at what the onsen served to us that day, kindly read after the break...

#1 fish

#2 vegetables with mayo
#3 shrimp

#4 boiled tofu
#5 dried seaweed

#6 sake at 7am

#7 tamago and cherry tomato
#8 miso

#9 Uhm... I can't remember what this is ; p

#10 squid

#11 anchovies
bowl of rice and tea

here's what our breakfast tray set up
