    ... up some more information about the trail, I noticed that other articles suggested walking halfway to Hatajuku and reporting the same km distance that I’d read to the train station. A quick search on google maps confirmed that the first article greatly underestimated the distance back to the station. I also learned that the trail joined the regular highway in Hatajuku so effectively ended hiking and turned it into potential dangerous highway walking. I amended our ...

    This morning we head off to Hakone, about 80 min train ride away from Tokyo, to stay in a traditional Japanese inn (ryokan).

    Today at breakfast we were seated at the other side of the room where the printed placements reflected the names of the towers we could view. Yesterday's placements depicted that view and we pity the poor trainee who might muck the placemats up! After receiving such attention to her personal meal requirements, they must have been happy to wave Naomi off. Just as well we still had Kaoru (our guide) to help us navigate our way to Shinjuku station, though the unforgiving ticket gates ...

    ... and presented equally impressive. The food was all lovely, just a bit too much fish for us westerners! We did manage to find a pork restaurant, which we couldn't walk past yesterday for lunch! It only served pork and in two similar dishes, but it was delicious and a highly welcomed change! There are different types of onsen, for different purposes. In our Inn, they had public onsen which are essentially used as public bathhouses to wash and clean yourself. The "open ...
