... makes me very uncool to say so but I'm not a fan. I think if it were warm I'd like it but chewing cold rice is just not fun in my opinion. Let's hope that changes over the next 2 weeks or I've got a feeling meal times are going to be interesting. We're staying in a ryokan - a traditional Japanese guest house.

These "art" forms developed several centuries ago when there was no electricity and the only way to make the audience see their expressions was with the aid of white make up and eye emphasis.

What brave souls. The local Linino line runs directly beside the museum. There's no missing it. I pre-scouted the gift shop and ate a hot dog at the cafe, then entered the museum.

Our guide, Yumi joined us and helped us understand what to order and how to handle it. Again, we realized that on our own we could never have this experience. Finding the restaurant would be unlikely, but if we had wandered into it, we would have had no idea how to go about ordering. Paying the bill also required Yumi's intervention. All tables ...
