... balcony looks like something out of a painting. It would be like if the hiking area near North Bend/Mt. Si had a resort town nestled in among its valleys, but with higher elevation. I'm not used to seeing low-flying clouds drift over the landscape to collide with green mountains like this - it's incredibly peaceful here.

Even coming out to the poorer, more rural areas of Japan, a constant source of astonishment to me is ...

After a very traditional Japanese breakfast we drive to Gora Station and take a gondola ride across the Hakone Mountain crater to Owakudani. That's the site of the last volcanic eruption in Hakone 4,000 years ago. Off in the distance we see Mount Fuji!

At Owakundai, we can see steam coming from the geothermal springs and the smell of sulfuric gas ...

... and swimmers. After a brief visit to the marine town, we therefore made our way to Kyoto slightly earlier than planned and experienced our first Shinkansen, or bullet train. They are incredibly fast, getting us to Kyoto in just over 2 hours- we definitely need these in England!! Unfortunately Kyoto greeted us with a huge thunder storm, so we spent most of the evening in another K's house hostel. We hope tomorrow can bring us some sunshine to explore all the city has to ...

... and found ourselves emerging onto the most impressive street either of us have seen. You are bombarded by advertising on every level of (again) enormous skyscraper structures. Many of these have garden spaces on various floors where families hang out. After picking up a nice meal on the twelfth level of one we tried, with difficulty, to find the famous Sony building among the cluster of different brands. When we eventually found it, we messed around with all the spec ...
