For those of you who haven't been to Southern Japan, it is humid here. On a good day its 60% humidity but during summer and other warm days it can 80%-90% humidity. With A/C it is tolerable but without it, I am dying. One of the things I have started not being able to stand is my hair on my neck. I have been trying to grow it back out but it is at that awkward stage of most it being long enough to put in a ponytail but there is a decent amount at the bottom that is too short for the ponytail and too short and thick to be clipped up without a ton of hairspray. I have been wanting to change it up. So I decided to chop it all off.
Yesterday in my post about the Hotel & Resort Sunshine Sazan Seto I mentioned the spa services offered. I wanted to do a separate post for Hiroko and the services she offers because there is too much to include on the previous post.
After having a couple of long stressful weeks, Ashley and I decided that we needed a weekend away from base. Since our weekends are crazy we made Monday and Tuesday be our weekend. Thankfully the Hotel & Resort Sunshine Sazan Seto hosted us for our girls' trip. The resort is located about an hour away on Oshima Island. It is the perfect distance to make you feel like you are from base. With the palm trees surrounding the resort, it is easy to imagine you are on a tropical island. It helped set us up for the relaxation we were seeking.
