daimajo-sama’s birthday.

May. 12

Today is daimajo-sama’s birthday.

I went on a two-day, one-night excursion to Hakone Yumoto.



There were times when I thought it would be difficult to travel overnight with Daimajo-sama, who has been certified as requiring nursing care 4 times, but the barrier-free building is wheelchair accessible, there is an open-air bath in a large room, and meals are in a private room.



Thanks to the excellent hotel, I was able to stay with peace of mind.



I am grateful for that.



Dinner is a multi-course meal.

While looking at the fresh greenery of Hakone, we had delicious foods.



For a resort hotel, They has an unsurpassed wine list.

Japan wines are surprisingly substantial.



Moreover, it is very cheap compared to the price of famous French wines.

I chose Chardonnay from Yamagata, Yellow Magic Winery.

It’s been a long time since I’ve drunk Mr. Iwasaki’s wine, who is the owner & winemaker of the winery.



This is a natural orange wine.


I felt gentle fruits flavor, clean acidity and natural minerality.

Accented with a slight astringency.



This is outstandingly delicious.




It fit perfectly into today’s elaborate dishes.




It’s delicious, it’s delicious, and daimajo-sama drank it a lot.

The foods were also complete. We had a great time.



After dinner, you can drink as much as you want at the lobby lounge of this hotel.

This makes me happy.

I had a Chardonnay from South Australia.

And this is also delicious.



I think this kind of all-you-can-drink wine is usually good and decent, but this one is delicious.



It’s imported by Academie du Vin.


We enjoyed hot springs, good sake, good food.

It’s awesome.

Also, daimajo-sama seems to be having fun.

Let’s come again!
