Stranded in the snow

It's Saturday today and we were booked onto the 10:08am Shinkansen from Nagano on route for Tokyo. It hasn't stopped snowing very heavily since yesterday morning and when we arrived at the station this morning it was to find TV film crews and chaos. No trains had left that morning and there was to be a review at midday. At that time it was announced that no trains at all would run from Nagano that day. Meanwhile we had retreated to a Starbucks across the road from the station for ...

... notion of the Japanese highlands in the middle of winter was a little too optimistic, but I was expecting snow covered footpaths, snow plows clearing the streets in the mornings, and awnings and carports which had to have the thick piles of snow scraped off them because they were in danger of collapsing. All we're actually getting is a few flakes of snow yesterday, and enough snow here and there to make the odd pile of ice and slush. ...

Day 12 - Nagano. Now we're cold.

... 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 ...
