      ... choices, we stuck to a couple each. Rick needed a bit more food to fill up properly and I thought so too! So we went to the family mart and got an ice cream for me and potato chips for Rick. We were finally back at the hotel, with sore feet and very tuckered out from a full day of sightseeing. We settled in to watch some baseball on tv and have a beer. I played a game of "guess what the Japanese advert is about" rick wouldn't play. :( and then a big sleep ready for our next big day in ...
