... room. We decided to stay put and go to the Chinese restaurant in the hotel and then make an early night of it. The Chinese meal was fine although presented in a Japanese way with the fried rice coming last so we couldn't eat the sauce covered vegetables and meat with it to flavour it. I am sure that the Chinese meals in the UK which we are used to are served in a British way. If we ever go to China we'll find out. To bed as the taxis to the station were booked for 5:30 the following ...

So over a Toyoko Inn breakfast we devised a plan to head back on the Shinkansen towards Tokyo for a 25 minute journey, which would bring us to an area called Karuizawa, which is a picturesque area in the Nagano ...

... items in a sauna, while wearing a fur coat. It wasn't long before we all started stripping off layers, and I wondered how much I could take off before pushing the boundaries of indecent exposure.

But as hot as it was, you can't really argue with the value. Gloves? 105 yen. Beanies, scarves, neck warmers, thick socks, earmuffs, etc? All 105 yen. For a couple of dollars it may just save some bits of me from dropping off due to hypothermia, so I guess the ...
