We made it! Ben slept almost the entire flight from Sydney (before we even took off), waking just as they served breakfast an hour before we landed. Basti slept okay too but woke a few hours out of Tokyo and was quite upset for a while. Some food and games seemed to do the trick. Our transfer to the hotel went quite smoothly with one minor hiccup …
... from Shin-Osaka station Isabelle fell asleep, and she slept for almost 3 hours.
Not much happened of any note on the journey. There were a few areas which looked like they'd had a decent and very recent snowfall. And as usual on this journey, as we approached Fuji all cameras came out, and everyone scrambled for the left hand side of the train to take photographs.
Honestly, a few people got out ...
... exhibits around different themes. I had run earlier in the day. But not early, just before midday, and it was roasting; officially a high of 30 or so, but I'm sure it was warmer. Frankly, I struggled, and after 7 miles didn't need to wonder where the hostel was. I'm sure I asked the GPS to take me back to Toco, but it got excited by proximity and took me to the nearer Tocomaiso instead. I knew the distance it was telling me ...
... the next 3 weeks. I was shattered and my brain thought it was 2.30am. Suffice it to say i didn't take much info in! I've got a lot of reading ahead of me this holiday :P
Took the "Skyliner" train out of Narita, possibly the smoothest, cleanest train I've every had the pleasure to ride. It looked like it literally rolled off the production line this week and ...
... Perhaps because we have a guide with us at all times, we have not even been approached by any of the con artists. But it is worth noting that anyone who approaches you speaking English, offering to take you on a tour, should be avoided. They usually put you in a car, tell you that where you are headed (Grand Palace or whatever) is closed today (renovation, etc.) and they will take you elsewhere. Major ripoff.

Staff so helpful, yummy breakfast, great room.
No cot for Basti so I slept with him in double bed which ended up being fine.
Executive level was deduntely worth extra little bit - computers to charge iPads and phones, drinks/snacks and printers for tickets and itineraries. Excellent.
Bags taken all the way to TCAT terminal when we checked out. Amazing service!
