... cooking, this time for an interesting fusion of Japanese and English styles: a Japanese casserole. This involved Japanese sweet potatoes and beef, and demonstrated just how much Coco loved her time in the U.K - she`s certainly incorporated much into her way of life now!

Points of interest:
1. There are no fat people in Japan
2. Japanese is 129% harder to write than to speak
3. Japanese vending machines are the best in the world. And still there are no fat people.

Using information gleaned from our Japan by rail guidebook we made our way to Mishima station by bullet train in order to get as close as we could for a good view of Mount Fuji.

... a concert on the river in Ito that evening and we decided to have a look as it was close to the hotel and we wanted to go out for dinner anyway. It turned out to be a performance by a local Taiko band. Hearing the smaller and larger drums being played together, accompanied by a flute was really great. And the whole thing taking place on the river made it magical. After a while it started to get pretty cold on the river so we went into ...

Onsens are also a place where people meet and socialize, kind of like a sauna here but they are much more rooted in Japanese culture. I checked into the hostel which is actually a very nice restored, 100 year old ryokan and right after unpacking my stuff i went to the room with the Onsen. I got undressed and washed myself while sitting ...
