Several people have told me that I should interview Yasuhiro. I found the suggestion hard because first, I don’t know him, and second, I was never be able to find him. Apparently his time zone is different than mine. But I finally found him in the early morning. After he finished playing “Coin Catcher,” I then asked him for the interview.

In these trips, I like to go to stay-in at the traditional hotel (it’s called Ryokan in Japanese) where they have hot spring bath. I enjoy taking a hot spring bath and watching starts at night.

After talking with Yasuhiro, he makes me eager to try Japanese hot spring bath. Can someone tell me how much do I have to save up for a trip to Japan?
