... rooms were available. We went to a good hotel about 20 minutes walk from the station and were shown to our rooms after a bit of a wait. Luxury- we could take showers although we had no clean clothes to change into as we had only our day sacs with us. We wondered where our big bags were as the courier firm was no doubt affected by the snow as well. The first part of this entry was written in the hotel room while we watched TV before meeting up with the rest of the group to decide on ...

... the next train, which was to Nagano, we missed it and had to wait for the next one. That was 20 minutes late leaving so what had been at the outset a very tight schedule for the day so that we could see the snow monkeys became almost impossible.

... complete accident that we were in there.

So on we trekked, out in search of an actual shopping centre, and we came across the My Town C-One shopping arcade. A small but pleasant place for us to get in out of the cold for a few and hour until our room became available.
Little did I know that this place would have a 100 yen store on the second floor, and since we've had a distinct lack of time to browse 100 yen stores so far, Veronica thought this would be ...
