We went to Kusatsu Onsen last weekend, so I decided to do a little painting of the local mascot Yumomi-chan. The water in Kusatsu is super hot, so it’s traditionally cooled by women with large wooden planks. You can read a nice write up and even check out a video of one of their performances over at JapanNewbie.
This is my second Gunma-tastic painting in a row, previous being the Daruma of course, and the next one will be even more so. What do you think it will be?
