Room was exceedingly small (~ 4 tatami mats including space under bunkbeds), with no space to store bags and about 6" clearance under the bed. There was no place to pass each other inside the room. Bathroom smelled and was apparently cleaned by someone who got a discount on their stay for it, so not much motive to do a good job.

Room was on the 2nd floor, with a run down kitchen, shower / toilet (shared between ~ 10 people). Registration was in another building. Free computer.

In the shop they sell this week's best selling top 3 products (ranked in terms of sales) for everything ranging from hand cream to toothbrushes to chewing gum ! It was definitely worth a look before we headed back to our hotel for a well needed rest. More fun tomorrow when we attempt to cover Roppongi and ...

The people are amazingly friendly and helpful but they definitely look at us like we are aliens! Maybe its the Fro, maybe its the big boobs or maybe its that we are the only ones wearing shorts this time of year lol. who knows but who cares cause their stares are soon followed by smiles!

... periods of Japanese history; most of the figures' expressions seemed to say, "Look! I just discovered hunting!" or "Look what happens when you pound away at rice for an hour!"

If you have time to kill in the Ueno area, or if you're there and get caught in the rain, this is a good museum to spend some time in. And of course, the gift shop sells cute keychain or cell phone charm versions of most of the animals on display.

During one of her numerous shopping expeditions Charlotte had bought a bottle of bubbles – you know you dip the circled end of a bit of plastic into a bottle of liquid and blow through the circle and a stream of bubbles float about. As we wandered back to the subway, Charlotte was ...
