... clear the snow from my shoe and I got a bit bogged and off balance so landed in the snow. Where it is very soft, it was harder but most of the parts we walked were quite ok.

We wandered back around through the trees and out onto some white on white areas. The ...

The walk back down into town was lovely, it was a nice downhill track that took us through little back streets past cute shops and houses. We were trying to find the sake brewery but it is never easy to find places as they don't signpost in English even in touristy areas and we found ourselves ...

... us much. We decided to go for a little walk around the area. It looked as though there was a park and a few temples which turned out to be a cemetery and a few temples. It was quite nice walking through it with blobs of snow on the ground. Some of the plots were quite historical with information about the people there. After this we started our train journey with our faithful wheels bags. We had to get back to Ueno station to catch the Shinkansen to Nagano. This was only a ...
