... 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, ...

... 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 ...
