... dinner together. This is traditional on the last evening of an Explore trip. As I was writing it the TV had an extended news programme about all the problems caused by the snow which is affecting the northern half of Japan. Well, most of us met in the hotel reception at 6:00 but there was then a division of ways and no group dinner. Some went back out into the snow to the temple again, planning to go to an. Italian restaurant. Two had already been out and bought sandwiches to eat ...

... opportunity to punish me. So, with much dread, we entered Seria. No, not the wartorn epicentre of unrest in the middle-east, but a much calmer store, where everything costs 105 yen, or around a dollar.
