Imabari, Ehime (Shionomaru Onsen Hotel) – Day 2 (b)

imabari Day 2
By the time we arrived back at Imabari main station and checked into our onsen hotel, it was almost 5pm. As usual, due to our last minute decision for me to come on this trip, we didn’t have too many choices left to reserve our accommodation as most of the roykans was either full or not accepting new reservations. So we were left with only booking a normal onsen style hotel though we still opted for the traditional Japanese room.

March is the month for Girls’ Festival in Japan so most places had traditional doll decorations out.

We also have one cute one on our dining table.

The happiest moment besides staying in onsen would be the full course dinner 🙂

Serisously, I have never played this board game ever. Since the hotel had various board games rental for free. I wanted to try this game out.

So this game is a simulation of your life story where you start off going to school then find a job when you graduate and a better job along the way. After you get married and you add one more “stick” into your car and more along the way when you have a kid etc. Almost like monopoly but with a depiction of your “life cycle”
