As I was writing it the TV had an extended news programme about all the problems caused by the snow which is affecting the northern half of Japan. Well, most of us met in the hotel reception at 6:00 but there was then a division of ways and no group dinner. Some went back out into the snow to the temple again, planning to go to an.

One such establishment is the Karuizawa Prince Shopping Plaza. As we got off the uncrowded ...
