... off and had lunch in a restaurant but we stayed put. We both had caught the cold going round the group and Starbucks was comfortable and warm. The tour leader came and went during this time, checking for news at the station. Eventual lit emerged that all trains that day were cancelled so he queued for about 90 minutes to buy reserved tickets for an early bullet train the following day. Then he had to find us a hotel for the night as none of us were keen to return to the ryokan, ...

... last tickets are issued at 4:00. Our tour leader had phoned ahead to the ticket office and managed to persuade them to stay open, so we got in.

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

... worth it.

We made it out of Seria alive, and after some other rather pointless wanderings throughout the shopping mall, we found ourselves at the starbucks downstairs for a warming coffee (or hot chocolate for the girls) just as it started to snow.
