... room. We decided to stay put and go to the Chinese restaurant in the hotel and then make an early night of it. The Chinese meal was fine although presented in a Japanese way with the fried rice coming last so we couldn't eat the sauce covered vegetables and meat with it to flavour it. I am sure that the Chinese meals in the UK which we are used to are served in a British way. If we ever go to China we'll find out. To bed as the taxis to the station were booked for 5:30 the following ...

... As a result it was the most uncomfortable train ride of the trip so far. With no spare seats together Charlotte and Angela had to sit with a Japanese businessman each, and Veronica and I sat together with Isabelle on our knee for the 55 minute train ride.
Imagine catching a cramped 80km/h sauna with your clothes on, with a bunch of loud Japanese businessmen and no fresh air, for almost an hour, with 3 kids and a wife who don't want to be ...

... the platform at Tokyo station waiting for the Shinkansen Charlotte pointed out the coolest vending machine I'd ever seen in my life. Instead of actual bottles visible to select from, the vending machine simply had a giant touchscreen. When not in use the machine displayed news, weather, as well as information about the products contained within the machine, and when touched, the machine offered up advertisements and nutritional information about the product you'd selected. ...
