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.

It turned out to be an elementary school turned public activity center for kids and teens, where the various classrooms on ...

So she, Agnes and me left to go meet him. ...

Masters in the forrest with a nun and rabbits

... my favorite.

We jingled our bells and a rabbit rushed over. We ordered a few drinks and a dessert and continued to sit in silence trying to absorb everything around us. In the back of the room, there was a wall with a large glass window where you could watch the rabbits prepare the food in the kitchen. When the rabbit brought us our drinks, she let us know that the drink Cathy ordered was named after her and she prepared it for Cathy. Very special. While we were there, ...

... Really stunning views of Tokyo and supposedly sometimes, Mount Fuji, but even though it was sunny when we went, there was too much haze so we couldn't see Fiji-san.

Went to the One Love Jamaica Festival at Yoyogi Park - lots of live music, dancing, and a heap of stalls selling handicrafts, food and drink from the island nation. Didn't know there were so many reggae fans in Japan! Lots of drinking but I didn't smell that ...
