Stranded in the snow

... then made it back to some paths where the snow had been partly cleared so the walking was easier. The guide said that she had lived in Nagano for 40 years and had never known such heavy snow. We made our way back to the ryokan for breakfast. This was entirely vegetarian and we sat on floor cushions at very low individual lacquered tables. Then it was off, by bus, to the railway station. When we arrived at the station it was to find it very crowded and there were tv crews there ...

Most Japanese shopping malls I've been to are in the middle of crowded urban centres, and as such have no spare space, and shops are all crammed in as close as possible to each other. Not this one. This complex was pretty huge, and in what appeared to be an unusual location, like it had ...

... opportunity to punish me. So, with much dread, we entered Seria. No, not the wartorn epicentre of unrest in the middle-east, but a much calmer store, where everything costs 105 yen, or around a dollar.

The operators of Seria were either numb or stupid, because it was as hot as the surface of the sun in the store. It made the Shinkansen seem positively comfortable by comparison. 100 yen stores are unpleasant at the best of times, but this one was like shopping ...
