We settled into our hotel and went to visit the old shops which were really interesting. The next day we went to a village museum which consisted of reconstructed houses 300 years old. Am sending a picture for little sam of the original ugg boots made of straw.  That night we found a jazzbar that served food. The menu was in English so we chose a rice dish and some " sweet and salty" pork. It was intense chilli. Ian bit into a chilli and then couldnt breathe. He was just making rasping sounds. Really scary five minutes and then he was breathing normally. Not to be recommended!! We think salty meant spicy. There have been several occasions when words have been translated just not quite right.Anyway hes fine now. Today we are at Lake Ashni and have been up a cablecar to see mount fuji So beautiful.Apparently it is not visible very often so we were very lucky.  tomorrow evening we head out to the airport ,ready for our flight to Singapore early on wednesday. We are eight hours ahead of GMT time. Its been great hearing from you so please keep the comments coming. Also please tell mutual friends to check their spam mail as not everyone has received notification of  my travelpod.

Too much excitement!
This blog is such a good idea - quite disappointed if I turn on the computer and the next installment hasn't arrived. Japan sounds fascinating but sure the incident with the chilli was excitement you could have done without! No worries though Kirsten, we all know how good you are in a medical crisis! Can't wait to hear all about Singapore. Keep having fun love M & Jxx
