Here is a sample of a road construction in Japan. They are reinforcing the walls to prevent falling rocks. I noticed that the crane hanging by a steel rope and was digging into the wall. They built a temporary wooden wall along this construction site, there are around ten road guards directing traffic. In every road construction in Japan, it is done according to infrastructure manuals. Road guards on both ends of the construction directing traffic. Japanese roads are literally made to perfection. Immaculate as they can be. You can see that the government can afford to keep the roads in mint condition.

Beppu, one of the most famous onsen tourist destination. This was a pretty large city with onsens all over the city. It wasn’t a pretty place like Yufuin or Kurokawa.

One of the oldest onsens in the city. Very traditional onsen with open windows to the men’s changing room.

This is another small local onsen I found that was free. I got there around 6 in the morning and many old men came and started their day here. I got in trouble for not putting my shoes in the shoe rack.

Takasakiyama (Mount Takasaki) is a forested mountain just outside of Beppu and home to more than 1500 wild Japanese monkeys. The lady was able to point out the alpha male monkey here and down to about top 10 monkeys in the hierarchy. If she threw out a peanut to #2 top monkey, it would literally walk away from the food and let the #1 monkey get it. Talk about chain of command.

I don’t even get this type of treatment.
