... tonight and they were able to make a reservation for us at a good hotel, about a 20 minute walk from the station. Having arrived at the Starbucks before 10 o'clock we finally left (several drinks and cakes later) just before 2:00 for the walk to the hotel. We had an early start because we went to the Zenkoji Temple before breakfast to see the monks at their morning ceremony. We left the ryokan at 6:40 stepping out into a white world with the snow still falling heavily. We were ...

Imagine catching a cramped 80km/h sauna with your clothes on, with a bunch of loud Japanese businessmen and no fresh air, for almost an hour, with 3 kids and a wife who don't want to be ...

Day 12 - Nagano. Now we're cold.

... worth it.

We made it out of Seria alive, and after some other rather pointless wanderings throughout the shopping mall, we found ourselves at the starbucks downstairs for a warming coffee (or hot chocolate for the girls) just as it started to snow.
Again, and I've lost count of the number of times on this trip, we were the only idiots sitting outside, while everyone else sat inside looking out at the tourists who had obviously lost their minds. On the ...
