Morning at Kirishima

I usually can not wake up with just my alarm clock in the morning- but here, I woke up with a sound of birds!  I looked over outside and saw beautiful morning light with mist over sunrise. Kirishima’s “kiri” means mist in Japanese and now I know why this place is called Kirishima- mist island!  I had to dip in for morning open-air hot spring bath- look at this view!1%e3%81%8a%e9%a2%a8%e5%91%82

This morning, we had our breakfast at another villa called “Gajoen” which is also owned by the same people. Its about 10min from where we are staying.
