... to walk along under the main altar in pitch black darkness.

We all had to feel our way along the passage by touching the wall which was lined with wood and. I think that most of us were relieved to reach the end and climb stairs once more into the light of the temple. We then sat for a few minutes listening to the monks chanting ...

... Nagano station.
Wandering through the station, probably not surprisingly there was the highest ratio of foreigners to locals than I'd seen in all my trips to Japan. Also not surprisingly, every one of said foreigners, except for us, spoke with an American accent, and was carrying a snowboard.

Nagano is a small and peaceful little train station, in comparison to the massive and crowded cities within cities which have been the train stations we have ...
