Well the day started at 5am (UK time) on Saturday, 18th December, was a relatively smooth start to get to Paris CDG airport, but from there on was a bit of a nightmare. Excessive queuing, not enough staff, delays due to snow, all adding up to a stressful experience,,,

It's been the first day and the hotel staff have been friendly, the hotel's clean and set in a good location with restaurants and shops nearby. The rooms are small but what's expected in Japan. Was impressed with the range of toiletries given and especially with the high tech toilet. :)
