It's Saturday today and we were booked onto the 10:08am Shinkansen from Nagano on route for Tokyo. It hasn't stopped snowing very heavily since yesterday morning and when we arrived at the station this morning it was to find TV film crews and chaos. No trains had left that morning and there was to be a review at midday. At that time it was announced that no trains at all would run from Nagano that day. Meanwhile we had retreated to a Starbucks across the road from the station for ...

Not interested in fashion, we wandered past many stores, and continued to wonder why the reviews made such a big deal out of this place. "A great place to spend a day" ...

... a giant touchscreen was a natural progression for the humble mechanical vending machine, but I still thought it was pretty damn cool.

For the Shinkansen journey, again we could only book 4 tickets, since we only have 4 rail passes, so we tried our luck with an unreserved carriage, and since the train was starting its trip from Tokyo station, we got the pick of the seats. I think this was actually the least crowded I've seen a Shinkansen. We could have had a ...
