... 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 ...

... from the taps no one tried the bath. Some of the party got a taxi to a public bath house after we had eaten but we didn't as we were so tired we just wanted to go to bed.

Karuizawa is a very pretty location, and I'm glad we went there, but if you're ...

... if we'd wanted it, but we settled for 2 rows to ourselves, spread out, and relaxed.

Heading from Tokyo to Nagano, the scenery gradually got hillier and hillier, and appeared to get much colder outside. Before too long the cityscapes of Tokyo and Nagoya changed into vistas of snow covered villages in rural towns who's names I can't remember, or in some cases even pronounce.
