    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

    ... they are used to people and just walk right near you. A treat was seeing 2 of the young ones swimming and playing in the pool, just like little kids. They swim under water and squabble just like human kids. They spend a lot of time grooming each other. We could have stayed all day as they were so entertaining. How do monkeys turn adults into smiling idiots? Took trillions of photos of course. Next stop was the lovely traditional town ...

    ... private tour for 4! The guide then took us up the mountains on a magical mystery tour. We had no idea of what was happening, but it was a lovely drive first past apple and grape orchards and then on very narrow steep roads to the ski fields including Nozowan. We saw hot springs belching steam (volcano country), natural springs with beautiful drinking water, and even a light sprinkling of snow. Eventually we ended up back down the slopes above Nagano at Hotel Selan, which ...

    ... br> After lunch, I went to the shop and bought some jam and then started to head back to the Inn. The sun was now out and the temperature was warmer. The ride back was just as gorgeous as yesterday's when I first rode to the Inn but the sun was lighting up the other side of the valley and the mountains above. It was a good day...no it was a great day. Just when you think it can't get any better, life throws you a loop and you sing all the way back to the Inn.

    ... I think they were fried with a soy sauce flavouring and I took my time eating them but I did finish them all.

    I also had a good wash and a soak in the onsen (Japanese hot spring water). One of the perks of staying in a place like this is the chance to have a really good wash and a soak in the onsen. It feels natural after a while washing yourself and soaking with other naked men next to you even though, most times, there's no ...
