... we were able to find a good viewpoint to look down upon the masses of people from the Starbucks above the crossing. We wanted to explore some of the shops but it was getting late so they were all closing so instead we found a bar and went in to get some food instead. Everywhere was packed but we managed to find a place with a couple of seats by the kitchen before navigating the subway around all the drunken businessmen to get back to our hotel ...
We spent a good part of a day in numerous trains from the Island of Shikoku up into the Japanese Alps to the lovely town of Kanazawa.

Back on the bus and we arrive at our next stop a small hand pottery making factory, the 5th generation son who has been creating the pots shows us around.
