Aki took us to a great Kobe Steak restaurant called SteakLand where we all enjoyed teppanyaki style Kobe beef (was around $30per person, which I thought was reasonable for that grade of beef.). They had these deep fried garlic chips which the chef "refreshed" by frying the chips in butter and he kept them to the side of the teppanyaki grill so that they were extra crispy. The steaks were melt in your mouth delicious but I highly enjoyed those garlic ch ips eaten together with the steak. I cannot say it was that much better than the 5 star steak we have on the Star of Honolulu.
Paul felt that because of the seasoning and marbling, he could tell it was a better steak. Bran felt that the ryokan steak was a tad better. Dad was so gracious to treat us to such an awesome lunch.
After our fab lunch, Aki took us to various stores right under sannomiya station for shopping. I got to purchase my U V umbrellas

... co-grooming, and general monkeying around. (sorry. not really. ;)

For a ‘National Park’, this place did not have the infrastructure that we come to enjoy in many of the parks in the states (e.g., Mount Rainier). The trail was poorly maintained, the signage was limited (and often hand-written, ...

It was a great day at monkey park, the monkeys were very entertaining and well worth the effort to get here.
Now we are back in town and head to a discount clothes store where Shauna buys herself some snow boots for $7, as she is heading to the snow field with her boyfriend when he arrives in April 10th. I wont be travelling with, instead i will head to Toyama to see the Snow tunnel and do some ...

Back to the hotel for a quick pack up and then the long journey back to Tokyo airport with bus, bus, train, train, bus. All a lot of fun in Japan and that probably sums up Japan. The people are the most polite and respectful I’ve ever met. Everything is very different but really interesting and it’s definitely a country that I’d like to come back to. The skiing was great and although ...
... green run that zig zagged through the woods and the kids and sinead loved it. I decided to do the middle section of the Olympic downhill course and it was stunning – perfect snow, empty piste, steep as hell – just point down and hope for the best!
It was great to see the kids so confident on the slopes and Thomas went with Adam on the chair lift ...
... finished up with 2 knackered kids. Sinead had left the video recorder on the table in the restaurant and went back and there it was surrounded by hundreds of students. Great culture in Japan.
We got back to the resort and the kids played with their Aussie mates and we enjoyed some adults beers and 2 for 1 burgers followed by Mt Fuji chocolate lava cake which parents didn't get a sniff ...
