    ... look very nice for the few minutes that was clear.
    We checked in at the hotel which is a traditional Japanese hotel with mats and no shoes in the room. It has it's own hot spring in the basement. We went for a nice soak. The hot spring pools are segregated and no clothes are allowed.
    Dinner was traditional Japanese banquet called Kaiseki. It was more of an art display than a meal. Six courses later, we were full. Sake was great. ...

    This morning we take the Yamanoto Line to Tokyo station where we transfer to the Superview Odoriko train to Atami on the Izu Peninsula, about 90 min by train. Many train lines in Japan have their own jingle playing on the station and by now we know the Yamanoto jingle by heart. This upbeat tune sometimes plays in your head all day ;-) We have seats in the first car of the Superview Odoriko train, the seats are right behind the driver ...

There were 53 inspection facilities on major roads across the nation to defend Edo, now ...

    ... remotely looks like pink moss. It's kind of a remote area and we continue the road hoping we will all of a sudden see pink moss but we don't. Without a map (we had asked for a map at the rental car company but these days with English speaking GPS maps must have become obsolete) we have to rely completely on the GPS and for a while we have no idea where we are. We stop at a rest area that has a restaurant and some shops and get a better idea ...

    We have done another bullet train today and travelled nearer to Tokyo. This afternoon we had some scrummy tempura for lunch and then went on the cruise ship around the lake. We did see Mount Fuji briefly from the train this morning but unfortunately it was too cloudy this afternoon to see it. We were going up on the cable car today but they are not running at the moment so this is why we did the boat. This afternoon we arrived at our ...
