We stay in an Onsen Hotel. The name is 月之館. They have both western style and Japanese style room and we got the latter one. The stay was a half-meal package and the dinner was served in your room.

Dinner was served in your room. After the dinner, the maid will clear up the table and prepare your bed on Tatami.

This hotel has a few hot spring baths, both outdoor and indoor.  I can't take picture of the indoor bath, so only outdoor one is shown below.

The next day we went to Kobe for lunch, as it is quite convenient to go to Kobe by train. We had a yummy Kobe beef lunch.  ;D

I think the one we tasted in my last trip was better than this one

My observation was that most of the restaurant in Kobe hired some Chinese to serve the Chinese customers. Market-driven employment, huh......

We went back to Osaka that night and had dinner at a whisky outlet, selling a range of Suntory products. Food was so so tho.

After the dinner, we went to watch a night light show. They projected the light on the facade of the Osaka City Castle to describe the evolution of the Osaka City. Some LED lighting structures were also built. The show was quite night and beautiful.

I was a bit doubtful on the show as the facade area of the Castle is not too big, but it turned out that the movie projected was quite clear.
