... then made it back to some paths where the snow had been partly cleared so the walking was easier. The guide said that she had lived in Nagano for 40 years and had never known such heavy snow. We made our way back to the ryokan for breakfast. This was entirely vegetarian and we sat on floor cushions at very low individual lacquered tables. Then it was off, by bus, to the railway station. When we arrived at the station it was to find it very crowded and there were tv crews there ...
