... What was strange about this hotel was it a street entrance and there was no ramp so Andy once again had to carry the two large suitcases up the stairs. As we had the slight diversion from the station to the hotel we needed a few minutes to cool down in the air-conditioned room before we could even contemplate doing any exploring.
Our plan today, as it has been for some time was to find a post office and a box to leapfrog us to Sydney and a box of presents and ...
... up two hours, and bizarrely, two train changes outside of Tokyo. It was a good night though.
Our first day was surprisingly straightforward. We had booked a capsule hotel right next to the station (well about half a mile away, but in Tokyo that's nothing) and managed to find it straight away! Once you get over the fact that you're only allowed to wear the hotel robes past reception and the shower is a big naked communal affair ...

Again we must of looked pretty lost because a nice American man pointed us in the right direction once we got off the train. We had missed most of the action at the market...its most famous for its tuna sales at 4am but we didn't fancy getting up that early!! We wondered into a alley and ended up in a restaurant and once you are in there's no turning ...
