Stranded in the snow

It's Saturday today and we were booked onto the 10:08am Shinkansen from Nagano on route for Tokyo. It hasn't stopped snowing very heavily since yesterday morning and when we arrived at the station this morning it was to find TV film crews and chaos. No trains had left that morning and there was to be a review at midday. At that time it was announced that no trains at all would run from Nagano that day. Meanwhile we had retreated to a Starbucks across the road from the station for ...

... some of our overnight stuff in lockers to lighten the weight of our day sacks and just caught the bus. The snow was falling very heavily and a large amount had already accumulated on the roads.

In the middle of the complex there is a huge grassed area, covered in brown, frozen grass, and a very pretty, icy cold pond, containing 2 of the coldest looking ducks I've ever seen. They were floating around among the ice cubes. I'm assuming they were real. They looked real.

I trekked straight across the field towards the pond, and Veronica tells me that the signs say to keep ...

... a decent snow storm roll in, so with the sun gone down, and the temperature now dropped easily below freezing in the wind, I took Charlotte and Angela for a walk back towards the train station, through the lightly falling snow, to the 7/11 for a selection of dishes and sandwiches for dinner. Since the Toyoko Inn rooms have very little room to eat, we made use of the tables, chairs and kitchen facilities in the hotel lobby to heat and eat our meals. Judging by ...
