... trail had many signs pointing the correct direction and maps outlying the route. It also confirmed that getting a bus at Hatajuku was the best plan. Although almost an hour had passed, I was surprised when we soon arrived at the Amazake Chaya (tea house). Will had recently awoken as I had slipped and jolted him from his nap.

... This morning we all woke up with tired legs. Luckily we had a chance to rest them as we took a series of trains from Kawaguchiko down to Yokohama, then a bullet train west to Kyoto. Getting around in Japan is a world apart from the trains and busses in Southeast Asia we’ve been experiencing lately. This trip is taking just 2.5 hours, not all day!
