    The tipping point: I no longer want to come home

    ... that is utterly pervasive. It's actually become something of a game - to try and find the one piece of garbage that someone forgot to pick up. Even out here in the countryside, groundskeepers and old ladies minding their storefronts and even off-duty tour guides - all routinely, perpetually seem to be picking up and maintaining the cleanliness of even the busiest tourist areas.

    It's amazing.

The only thing we see is a moat and a bridge that leads to the palace that we can't see in the distance. Not sure this was worth getting wet for! The Emperor is similar to the British Monarchy. They no longer have ruling authority, but are given $3MIL ...

    Hello readers, The last few days we have covered a lot of ground! On Thursday we said goodbye to Tokyo and made our way to Hakone on what should have been a quick and efficient journey. However, with our lack of Japanese and hangover from our mad1 the night before we found ourselves missing stops, being on completely the wrong platform and doubling our journey time to an impressive 4 hours.

    ... grounds is prohibited, but the East gardens of the Imperial complex is open to the public, so we made the most of this. The gardens are picturesque in all the ways you`d expect of a Japanese garden: calm, with a small waterfall flowing into a pool of brightly coloured carp. All this with Tokyo`s impressive urban centre towering in the background, you get a real sense of Japan present and past wandering in the gardens.
    Ginza is Tokyo`s answer to Oxford street. We headed there on ...
