Stranded in the snow

... tonight and they were able to make a reservation for us at a good hotel, about a 20 minute walk from the station. Having arrived at the Starbucks before 10 o'clock we finally left (several drinks and cakes later) just before 2:00 for the walk to the hotel. We had an early start because we went to the Zenkoji Temple before breakfast to see the monks at their morning ceremony. We left the ryokan at 6:40 stepping out into a white world with the snow still falling heavily. We were ...

... a decent snow storm roll in, so with the sun gone down, and the temperature now dropped easily below freezing in the wind, I took Charlotte and Angela for a walk back towards the train station, through the lightly falling snow, to the 7/11 for a selection of dishes and sandwiches for dinner. Since the Toyoko Inn rooms have very little room to eat, we made use of the tables, chairs and kitchen facilities in the hotel lobby to heat and eat our meals. Judging by ...
