... below, the place was really nice. I got Chinese style noodles and when they came out, it looked like it was moving and it freaked me out. I thought it was live fish tails moving but it was just this shaved lettuce paper on top being moved by the steam below it. I didn't really like the noodles, everyone else's food turned out to be good though. We had a massive party in the guys room that night, we played music so loudly and I ended up drinking strong, ...

... She didn't speak English except for look up/down eyes open/closed... The standard words a make up artist would know.

Going around the garden, few plum trees were blossoming.

Started by burning small fires to giant cedar fire holders. Very amazing to ...

The ride was a little scary at times, with the scenery whizzing by so quickly, so I tried not to think about the carnage that would ensue if we went off the tracks, and instead focused on enjoying the views of Mount Fuji in the distance. We paid $137 each.

Kyoto, a city of 1.5 million, only ...
