Steamed "buns"

Thought I might spice up my blog with some "steamed buns", very popular in Japan. 

An onsen in Japan is the name for a hot spring. There are thousands of them all over Japan and often incorporated into Ryokans. It is perfectly normal for you to wash and then relax in an onsen with other guests. I had this down as a bit of a big no no but actually when you realise that it's just the norm and that your room doesn't have a bath or shower you just get on with it and it really is wonderful!

The second picture really is of a steamed bun with beef. They are so good when you're hungry and good hot street food when it's cold and drizzly too.
