We arrived a few hours late, and then rushed off for the train to take us into the capital. We passed a lot of Japanese countryside - astoundingly different from English fields full of cows and sheep, and caught up on some much needed sleep. After dumping our over-sized bags at our home for the next three days, 'New Star Hotel, Ikebukuro' we set of …
