    Dinner tonight is in their French restaurant. We are welcomed by an English speaking waiter from Sri Lanka. Knowing he would have English speaking guests, he had kindly translated tonight's menu into English and printed it out for us. The food is surprisingly delicious and beautifully plated, you don't quite expect a French chef in a family type resort in Kusatsu. As it turns out the chef had worked at the embassy in Italy which explains it ...

Thus, it was with some trepidation that we made our way into their area of ...

    Today we take a bus into the mountains to visit the Snow monkeys. The monkeys live near a hot spring and will sit in the hot springs right through winter to keep warm. The bus ride is 1 hour and has some stunning views. You have to walk 1.5ks through a beautiful forest to get to the entrance of monkey park. Now as the snow is melting the path is very wet and muddy.
    After paying the entrance fee we finally lay eyes ...

    ... are not as a high as the Alps the snow seems excellent.

    The hotel at the airport was, well an airport hotel so not much write home about… but Japan on the other hand…

    Can’t wait to chat to our Japanese friends back at JSK to explain what a country they’ve got.

    I hope the kids remember and savour it as there won’t be many more interesting and fun countries they ...
