... room. We decided to stay put and go to the Chinese restaurant in the hotel and then make an early night of it. The Chinese meal was fine although presented in a Japanese way with the fried rice coming last so we couldn't eat the sauce covered vegetables and meat with it to flavour it.

So over a Toyoko Inn breakfast we devised a plan to head back on the Shinkansen towards Tokyo for a 25 minute journey, which would bring us to an area called Karuizawa, which is a picturesque area in the Nagano ...

... items in a sauna, while wearing a fur coat. It wasn't long before we all started stripping off layers, and I wondered how much I could take off before pushing the boundaries of indecent exposure.
