Out of the city...traveling with a teenager has pushed me out of my comfort and has led me to fluffy pancakes, Crowded streets, Candy shops, and shopping in stores I would normally NOT enter. All I want to do is hang out in the tea 🍵 houses, so we are compromising. :) Now we are at the hot spring mountains of Hakone. It’s raining and the air is so fresh. I’m dancing with joy to finally be in nature. We are off to catch the bus and see the volcano and take a pirate ship across the lake to the ancient cedar forest and of coarse the tea house. .
