... room. We decided to stay put and go to the Chinese restaurant in the hotel and then make an early night of it. The Chinese meal was fine although presented in a Japanese way with the fried rice coming last so we couldn't eat the sauce covered vegetables and meat with it to flavour it. I am sure that the Chinese meals in the UK which we are used to are served in a British way. If we ever go to China we'll find out. To bed as the taxis to the station were booked for 5:30 the following ...

As for the shopping arcade, it was underwhelming. It can apparently get very busy, but today it was absolutely deserted. Mostly popular fashion labels, the clerks in the store seemed to get ...

... the platform at Tokyo station waiting for the Shinkansen Charlotte pointed out the coolest vending machine I'd ever seen in my life.
