Stranded in the snow

... realised that the snow must indeed be exceptional and that the trains must be disrupted. They were. No trains were going anywhere. We waited for a while to see if the trains would start moving but by 10:00 we were told the situation would be reviewed at 12:00 noon so we all headed across the road from the station to a Starbucks as the cafe at the station was full of other waiting passengers. We stayed in Starbucks until almost 2:30 only buying a couple of hot drinks. Some of the ...

... the next train, which was to Nagano, we missed it and had to wait for the next one.

They had a massive selection, but they didn't seem much cheaper than any other sports shoe store I've seen in Osaka, Tokyo or Kyoto.

Karuizawa is a very pretty location, and I'm glad we went there, but if you're ...

... items in a sauna, while wearing a fur coat. It wasn't long before we all started stripping off layers, and I wondered how much I could take off before pushing the boundaries of indecent exposure.

But as hot as it was, you can't really argue with the value. Gloves? 105 yen. Beanies, scarves, neck warmers, thick socks, earmuffs, etc? All 105 yen. For a couple of dollars it may just save some bits of me from dropping off due to hypothermia, so I guess the ...
