I woke up this morning to the sound of heavy rain and wind. There was a Typhoon coming from the south, and the Mt. Fuji area was in it's path. Today was going to be a day of patience. There was not much to do but just wait it out. By lunch time things were settling down, and for those of us in the hostel that was good. Two couples from Spain were hoping to have ...
... bike. All fueled up, and a route planned, I wanted to get a feel for Mt. Fuji. The road I decided to ride was called the Subaru line. At the start there is a toll of 200 yen for cyclist's.

... give me enough time to get back to the hostel, sort my bags out, grab a shower, and get back to the train station in time for my bus. The bus ride back to Tokyo passed instantaneously, as I slept the entire way, and I was soon in the tube system en route back to my hostel.
