    I was originally planning on limiting my vacation to Tokyo/Kyoto area, but hearing/reading a lot about Hakone convinced me to add it in at the last minute.

    I'm here for 2 nights, but unfortunately I'm already regretting this - I wish I could stay here for a few weeks instead.

    ... and found ourselves emerging onto the most impressive street either of us have seen. You are bombarded by advertising on every level of (again) enormous skyscraper structures. Many of these have garden spaces on various floors where families hang out. After picking up a nice meal on the twelfth level of one we tried, with difficulty, to find the famous Sony building among the cluster of different brands. When we eventually found it, we messed around with all the spec ...
