It was time to check out of Shibuya City Hotel. After finishing the formalities, took a cab to the JR SOUTH ENTRANCE Shinjuku since we had to board the Shinjuku-Kawaguchiko direct train on Platform#12. I strongly advise you to avoid taking a subway/local train to Shinjuku and boarding the Shinjuku-Kawaguchiko direct train. Shinjuku station is huge and you will get lost with all the crowd.

... and had it with duck. A huge cauldron of a thing came out, which I struggled to finish, but every mouthful was a delight. Hokuto is a noodle soup dish with the noodles being more like a thick tagliatelle rather than a traditional noodle. These's noodles are unique to this area of Japan.
