    Traditional ryokan experience

    Nice ryokan in the Hankone Mountains. Be prepared to wear slippers during your visit and even a Yukata. The lobby bar, and the entire ryokan for that matter, was a bit dated, but they had karaoke and a good selection of drinks. The hot springs bath in the basement was pretty good, but they also had several massage chairs to use before or after your bath. That was enjoyable. The food was really good and there was a convenient store right next door that opened at 7am. Beds were futons that were prepared by the housekeeper each day.

    On our way outside of Tokyo to the mountains of Hakone, we visit the entrance of the Imperial Palace. Unfortunately, the day is very rainy and cloudy and we had to get a bit wet walking to the entrance. The only thing we see is a moat and a bridge that leads to the palace that we can't see in the distance. Not sure this was worth getting wet for! …

    After a very traditional Japanese breakfast we drive to Gora Station and take a gondola ride across the Hakone Mountain crater to Owakudani. That's the site of the last volcanic eruption in Hakone 4,000 years ago. Off in the distance we see Mount Fuji! The skies today are still grey and we have some light rain, but at least we can see the top. …

    ... almost-non-sequiteur appearance of a museum entirely dedicated to Antoine du Saint-Exupery and the Little Prince!

    The botanical garden in particular overwhelmed me with the breadth of natural beauty on display. Walking among reeds and flowers in an enormous sunlit field, I felt so keenly that I've been 'doing it wrong' with an endless slog of overtime hours and wasted PTO.

    I guess I just didn't know what I was ...

    ... of the cable car we reached Lake Ashi, which despite the dense fog still looked beautiful and certainly worth the money after all. To end the day we headed to the far less cultural, Yunessun, the so called amusement park of onsen baths. We soon found out why, as we experienced baths of coffee, sake, charcoal, green tea, and red wine, as well as water slides and numerous varieties of jacuzzi baths. When Kalila had finally got all the red wine out of her hair, we made ...

    ... and found ourselves emerging onto the most impressive street either of us have seen. You are bombarded by advertising on every level of (again) enormous skyscraper structures. Many of these have garden spaces on various floors where families hang out. After picking up a nice meal on the twelfth level of one we tried, with difficulty, to find the famous Sony building among the cluster of different brands. When we eventually found it, we messed around with all the spec ...
