Today we travelled to Kawaguchiko, which is near the bottom of Mt Fuji. We went on a non-bullet train which was pretty good, even if it didn't go 300km an hour. We got to Kawaguchiko around lunch time and couldn't check in to the Ryokan until 3 so we had some lunch at a random restaurant near the station.

So we very abruptly changed our plans right there and then in the train station, picked somewhere on the map, quite at random, and decided to head there instead. So here we go to Nikko, somewhere we know absolutely nothing about, just hoping for the best!
... or so at the temple we were ready to head back to our hotel. I had been looking forward to this because we were getting to ride a Shinkansen (bullet train) on one of the legs. Capable of going 200mph, I was surprised to learn Shinkansen is celebrating its 50th year anniversary. As we got to full acceleration, I was like a kid in a candy store as I watched the buildings whiz by. I can't believe how smooth it was. I looked at the local riders and they couldn't have cared ...
