It's Saturday today and we were booked onto the 10:08am Shinkansen from Nagano on route for Tokyo. It hasn't stopped snowing very heavily since yesterday morning and when we arrived at the station this morning it was to find TV film crews and chaos. No trains had left that morning and there was to be a review at midday. At that time it was announced that no trains at all would run from Nagano that day. Meanwhile we had retreated to a Starbucks across the road from the station for ...

The train back from Matsumoto was the 6pm rush hour "express" on the local line, and as a result was packed with businessmen and peak ...

Day 12 - Nagano. Now we're cold.

... a store of this magnitude stocking only hardcopy books would still be a viable venture. But to be honest business was booming. There were lots of people on every floor, all thumbing through books, and I think every one of them stopped reading to stare at the lost Aussie tourists, who obviously couldn't read a word of Japanese, as they walked through the bookstore searching for an exit. We purchased a couple of little items on level 2 just to make it appear like it ...
