... us in the middle of the line approximately where we would have been cued up by now. Great gesture!
Beside from chocolate churros, the food was pretty bad at the park. Nothing was shaped like Mickey or Donald like food items are in Florida. The majority of the food (fair enough, tailoring to the guests) was Asian, but not even good Asian food. The pork cutlet and rice curry we had was pretty flabby and salty.

Japan is well-served by an efficient transportation system that is necessarily complex, and to us rural folk accustomed to getting in our car whenever we want to go somewhere, totally confusing.
