6:00 am wake up again. I've realized I'm a glutton for punishment. I thought I'd be Superman today and go to the remote regions of both Motegi and Mt. Fuji today. They are five hours apart and I was starting off in Tokyo. Which is three and a half hours away from Motegi. I failed miserably. My commute to the Twin Ring Motegi was going smoothly until about 7:45 am. I had gone two stops NW instead of NE at the split at Omiya. I had hopped on a train the was a couple of ...

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. :)
