... for the first half of the drive then entertained himself with a fire truck I bought at the rest stop break. It would prove to be a wise purchase as he drove it along the side of almost every walkway throughout the tour. We entered Nikko National Park on the way to our first stop. The mountains were ablaze with gold and red leaves. The bus wound its way up through 24 switchbacks before arriving at Yudaki Falls. The air was crisp and chilly as we made our way to the base of the ...

Further, Japan is a mountainous country and requires a lot of climbing to get around unless you're sticking to the coast. However, I find the best views and most interesting routes are the ones ...

... inn without any breaks. The descent was freezing. This side of the mountain was in the sun's shadow and the wind chill as I was speeding down the road made it even colder. Finally, I rolled in at around 5 PM after starting the day at 9 AM

At the inn, the only thing I wanted to do was go for a wash in the hot onsen water. After a long day's ride combined with the cold temperatures at the end, this would feel great. After a good soak and a stretch in the onsen, I came ...

... We finally got them and headed inside. I got quite a shock that ringside didn't actually mean ringside - it meant one section back lol. I was pretty bummed but then when I saw where we were situated I got quite excited! We were right where the fighters do their walkout! It was so interesting watching them standing there waiting to walk out. Some where nervous. Some where stone faced and others were down right excited and jumping for joy. The fights were thrilling. ...
