Photos of the beautiful wild flowers and autumnal colored foliage were displayed on the wall. It was like the process to enter the sacred area and turn myself to another kind of creature.
At least, on my way to the room I would stay, I learned a lot about the area around the lake rapidly, I think. The photos might encourage the visitors to stay in the area much longer than scheduled and to visit again.
So many people had visited the area but even this popular hot spring bath area had experienced so tough times to run the facilities and to make ends meet. A young scion of a inn inspired entrepreneurship in the area and the fellows.
