... out the top. You can walk through caves inside it, go on rides in it and then there’s a pool inside with a huge cool looking submarine, and big bubbly spouts of water over the rocks. There’s a boat there! Like an actual old american ocean cruiser which looks like the flippin’ titanic inside with two levels of very fancy restaurants. Then there’s an old american town with broadway and shop fronts and tramlines and gardens and the like. Let ...
... we were buckled in for our second ride of the day. Unfortunately we weren't proving to be having quite a good track rate of good rides.

We got to the Villa Fontaine Hotel in Shiodome fine. It was v easy to get to I was v impressed with it! Japan hotels are notoriously cramped. The hotel chain we are with (hotel villa fontaine) had got good reviews save for the room size (which is the same everywhere) so I was really expecting somewhere teeny. It was totally normal-sized! It didn't have any drawer space but at least they had a wardrobe - this is one of their newer branches, ...
