From Odaiba, we took a long monorail ride back to Shinagawa. All in all, it had been a pretty long day. We didn't return to the hotel till 5.30pm.

Apparently the prefecture north of us had a metre of snow today and lots of cars got trapped, but it was actually quite warm here/Mito. I STILL LIVE IN HOPE!
Meeting the mayor tomorrow and doing a tea ceremony as well. Will report back tomorrow. :)
