Japan has alps. A lot of people don't know that, but they kind of look very much like the Swiss alps. After a lot of research, we booked one night in a ryokan, that's a traditional Japanese inn, in Tsumago. Tsumago is an old, preserved post town between Nagoya and Nagano--not quite into the high alps, but mountainous nonetheless.

Getting there required about as complicated a train route as you can have in this country, ...

We thought he was upset but Madoka translated for us that he was so overcome by emotion that he couldn't help crying. How adorable is that? He is a little character pretty much all of the time, making faces, singing made up songs about poo (past woofers have called him Mr. Poo) ...
