... off and had lunch in a restaurant but we stayed put. We both had caught the cold going round the group and Starbucks was comfortable and warm. The tour leader came and went during this time, checking for news at the station. Eventual lit emerged that all trains that day were cancelled so he queued for about 90 minutes to buy reserved tickets for an early bullet train the following day. Then he had to find us a hotel for the night as none of us were keen to return to the ryokan, ...

After the magnificent crapulence of the Kawasaki Toyoko Inn breakfast yesterday, Charlotte and I didn't even bother going down this morning.

When we left, I skillfully managed to lock the key in the room, which made it a fun conversation at the ...
