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 ...

... speaks very little English, unfortunately we don't speak Japanese... We receive all kind of vouchers for dinner, breakfast, onsen elsewhere as well as information in Japanese. To the best of her abilities she explains that there is only wifi in the lounge. When we are about to go to our room an older staff member informs us that we do have wifi in the room after all.

The bus is as punctual as the train and departs on time to the minute. The drive has plenty of beautiful country side and snow capped alps. We one stop once at a rest stop for 15 minutes, which is enough to stretch the legs. The driver tells us ...

For the final day, we got up and had our normal breakfast. Sam laughed that the HP had been unopened the whole season and since Thomas arrived, we'd just finished the bottle!

We had a couple of hours to kill so decided to go sledging. Kids loved it although it nearly killed Sinead. Isabel and Thomas did some nice runs and there was a nice carved toboggan run. For the final run, Thomas decided to go to the top of the ...
