... off and had lunch in a restaurant but we stayed put. We both had caught the cold going round the group and Starbucks was comfortable and warm. The tour leader came and went during this time, checking for news at the station. Eventual lit emerged that all trains that day were cancelled so he queued for about 90 minutes to buy reserved tickets for an early bullet train the following day. Then he had to find us a hotel for the night as none of us were keen to return to the ryokan, ...

But the 52 minute journey on the local line, which takes you up and over the snow covered mountains on the south western side of Nagano, is ...

... a store of this magnitude stocking only hardcopy books would still be a viable venture. But to be honest business was booming. There were lots of people on every floor, all thumbing through books, and I think every one of them stopped reading to stare at the lost Aussie tourists, who obviously couldn't read a word of Japanese, as they walked through the bookstore searching for an exit. We purchased a couple of little items on level 2 just to make it appear like it ...
