Excellent hotel and the rooms are good and very clean. The rooms are huge (based on Tokyo satndards), but it is far from shopping areas and not lcated right into the train station. It is only 5 mins walk (again, Tokyo standards) to the nearest station and the hotel provided free shuttle to Takandobaba station leaving the hotel every 30 mins.

I had to pay $1, shake a tin full of chopsticks with numbers on them, and then tip the box up to get one of the chopsticks to fall out of a tiny hole. This sounds like an easy task, but in typical fashion I made it difficult (two sticks kept getting stuck in the hole, while the people waiting ...
... and by the time we got to them at 12ish they were just being fed which meant they were all swarming around the main viewing area. Due to the fact there was no snow and it was actually quite warm in the sun only a couple of the monkeys got in the hot spring but we were able to watch them eating, fighting and playing in front of us. Once we'd had our fill of monkey watching we walked back down the mountain and got ...
... it great). Yesterday after figuring out our first money exchanges and ATM's we made it to the grocery store for a few fun minutes of guess what you are eating and then hopped on the trains, which are much faster than car travel according to google maps, and headed for the Asakusa district in the heart of Tokyo. There we perused the Sensoji Temple and surrounding touristy marketplace. For any of you curious about samurai swords, the most expensive one ...
