    ... had run out of take-away food and the only seats we could get were in the smoking carriage......................can you believe they still allow smoking on trains and in restaurants and bars in Japan. It seems alien to be eating your dinner and then have a big waft of smoke come your way but in most places, they dont even separate the smoking section from the non smokers.

    ... off the train and be confronted by a fair amount of concrete high-rise architecture, most of which is fairly directly opposite to the mental picture of Kyoto one develops from the guidebooks. Guidebook Kyoto does exist, but it is mostly situated around the edges of the city, and also hidden here and there throughout the body of the city. Our hostel was not far from the train station; as in Takayama, our room was a traditional tatami room with futons, rather ...

    ... spaced out, discreetly doing people watching. Note that doing people watching when everybody is naked is a delicate affaire. You kind of have to stare at the wall and use your peripheral vision to figure out what is going on. There are showers (that I did us if you were wondering) where you sit on a little stool and you have a mirror on front of you to make sure you can clearly see what you are doing, this makes me wonder if I’ve been cleaning myself properly all those ...
