    ... I them have an hour to take photos on my own camera. I get some help and she's lovely we walk outside and I get a few funny looks. I realise I'm striding along and am prompted to walk more geisha like. This seems to look better but I still feel like a muppet. Eventually I have enough. The get up weighs a lot and I'm boiling. I fear my white make up is streaking down my face. Less geisha more the clown from it. My helper is wonderful ...

    ... Four of us then caught the shuttle bus down to the central station, where we were promised there would be lots of restaurants. We finally found one which suited all of us, (one of the party is vegetarian) and we had a very typical meal for around 15.

It was as if this trip took me by the hand, pulled me into a freezing cold lake, and jerked me into a new reality. With each new gulp of air, I could once again enjoy the silence, the smells, and the sounds of life.


    Off to Japan we go.

    ... amazing. I never new Japanese food (other than sushi) tasted so good. I could not believe it. Day 3 (27th of November) On the 27th of November we went and firstly got lunch from one of the convenience stores, for lunch I got 2 sandwiches.
