... borrow umbrellas and without them we think we would have looked like walking snowmen before long. The snow was very deep but the shop keepers and the gardeners at the temple were already out clearing paths through the snow. We had an English speaking Japanese guide leading us around the temple. We walked through the main gates and into the grounds and then to the main hall where having removed our boots we walked up the side towards the main alter before descending some very ...

... for quite some time, and I was beginning to suspect that she wasn't coming back, but she eventually returned carrying a bunch of ice-cream tubs for us. I was tempted to ask for an extra one to make her walk back and get it, but we were only 30 minutes from Nagano at the time, so she might not have made it back in time.

Before long, on what I think was the most relaxed Shinkansen journey I've ever been on, we finished the 105 minute journey from Tokyo, and ...
