Conveniently near the bus and train stations, and the old town. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not up to the usual Best Western standard.

Arrival and travel to Tokyo Station First booth outside Customs is a Japanese Rail booth. Pick up prepaid JR Pass and book seats on the 3 trains to get to Takayama. First leg is through Tokyo Central to Shinagawa. Misty, 25 degrees. Houses are small some roofs are elaborate. Many baseball diamonds, some cyclists in Lycra. Cars are small, square and …
... was feeling crook. So instead we went over to Rapongi Hills and up the Mori tower to the roof at sunset. What a view!! Wish we'd been there a little bit earlier, and had a tripod to take a few more snaps, but happy with the ones I got :) Then to finish the night off, we headed down to Shinjuku to the Robot Restaurant!

Pizza, pasta and a couple of glasses of red were just what the doctor ordered. The snow fall really picked up in the afternoon, and was starting to settle on top of the trees and cars. Very pretty walk ...
... great to learn a little more about the cultural significance of the drink. Went out for dinner at the the restaurant attached to the brewery we toured. Ella had Tempura udon, and I had a big plate of everything! The main feature was the marbled Kobe beef, first time I've had it, and got to cook it myself on a little hot plate on the table. Was magnificent. Have also completely forgotten what day of the week it is! Definitely in holiday mode ...
