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.

We planned to go to Asakusa to see the Senso-ji temple. We could use our JR passes for free. Had a few changes and were waiting for a train but nothing seemed to be happening. A station master told us in broken English that it was cancelled and made us go with him. He walked and ran us through the underground station and up to the correct platform.
