About the author of this Japan blog

“Hi! My name is Mischa Berger. I am a Dutchman living in Oita, Japan. The prefecture of Oita and especially the town of Beppu are famous for their natural hot spring baths known as onsen. Not long after I moved to Japan, my wife Maiko introduced me to the different kinds of baths, the Japanese bathing culture and etiquettes. I soon started enjoying onsening.

When I found out I could become Onsen Meijin (Japanese for Onsen Master) — by visiting 88 different onsen in Beppu — I started going to onsen regularly. My wife and I began collecting stamps in our spaports in February 2008. On June 4th 2010, we got our 88th stamp, earned our black towels with golden letters and became Onsen Master!”
