... also marked with red and pink ribbons so it's nearly impossible to get lost. But the snow is very weak at some point and so i fell through quite a lot, with a brown muddy shoe as a result. I also fell flat on my face a couple of times because the snow makes the walkway very slippery. I also tripped over branches a couple of times, resulting in a few bruises.

... to be found. I asked a few ladies if they could help me find the right bus and before i knew it i was surrounded by about six people (including the station master) who were al figuring out for me how i could get to my destination.

She asked me about my ...

Wonderful walk up to ...

Today's ride was epic in many ways - the challenge of riding in thick fog, the beautiful scenery and the rush of descending for almost 20 km. The details are all below.

First, I was treated to a lovely, typical Japanese breakfast at the Spax Hotel in Kusatsu this morning. Looking back from my current ryokan here in Yudanaka, the Spax was a very nice hotel. ...
