... at a riverside picnic. We finished our exploring with a stroll through the local souvenir shops.
Mike and Will both fell asleep on the second train getting home. Lots of Japanese people sleep on the train, so they fit in fine. Will was so exhausted that he slept through the train transfer and the final stint to our station. I reflected on our day and realized that I should take the bus more often.

I've got a little behind with the blog over the last few days, but now have some time to catch up on the train from Hakone to Tokyo, on our way back from Mount Fuji and the surrounding area. The day before leaving for Mount Fuji, we had a cloudy day wandering around some of the older parts of Tokyo. We started near the Fish Market in a lovely palace park centred around a tidal, salt lake fed by the sea bordering the park (Hama-Rikyu Onshi-Teien). The gardens were lovely even on ...
