      Shopping in Sannomiya

      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

      ... huge big snow flakes falling down, it has eased up a bit now but was lovely, such a novelty coming from the tropics to snow. A big on of us got dropped in for dinner at 6. We ended up at a ramen place for warm soup and a beer. We sat with a young NZ guy here for the skiing. After this he took us to a cute little bar where we had to try the sake cocktails. The most popular was the Cointreau, tonic and sake one. It was not badly prices too at ...

      ... by our host at the train station and taken in his van down the windy snow lined roads to our guesthouse Mont Cervin. It has about 5 rooms and is decorated to look like someone's house, very cosy and most importantly warm. We were able to check in and settle before being taken into town for a meal. We were taken to a recommendation to Udon Fu where I had a tempura with udon soup. Wow ...

      ... yummy looking snacks so on the way down had to buy some to try. First was a giant rice cracker with black sesame, very nice. Next were some steamed buns, similar to Chinese style but a bit flatter. I had a red bean paste one and an eggplant and Scott had a red bean paste and a vegetable. They were delicious. Further down the road we got a whiff of a yummy smelling smell and found a bakery and had to try an apple pie. Lost ...

      ... walk to the park where the monkeys are, it sounded more arduous than it was. It was certainly colder up that way and a lot more snow. The walk in was lovely, a tiny bit slippery in some parts but very pretty through the forest. After paying 500Y we walked around the river and there they were. The first ones we spotted were sitting in the snow by the river and a few were running around. Then we got into the section where the hot water ...

      ... us much. We decided to go for a little walk around the area. It looked as though there was a park and a few temples which turned out to be a cemetery and a few temples. It was quite nice walking through it with blobs of snow on the ground. Some of the plots were quite historical with information about the people there. After this we started our train journey with our faithful wheels bags. We had to get back to Ueno station to catch the Shinkansen to Nagano. This was only a ...
