Stranded in the snow

It's Saturday today and we were booked onto the 10:08am Shinkansen from Nagano on route for Tokyo. It hasn't stopped snowing very heavily since yesterday morning and when we arrived at the station this morning it was to find TV film crews and chaos. No trains had left that morning and there was to be a review at midday. At that time it was announced that no trains at all would run from Nagano that day. Meanwhile we had retreated to a Starbucks across the road from the station for ...

Snow, monkeys and the bullet train

Leaving our bags at the hotel we took taxis to the railway station for the shinkansen, or bullet train. We were surprised to see that it was snowing as we hadn't expected snow as far south as Kyoto. It had been cold and we had been glad of our lined walking trousers, thermals hats and thick gloves to insulate us as we explored the temples etc but we had not expected snow.

After removing myself from their hay, and trying not to break a hip on the black ice that stood between me and the concrete pathway that the girls were on, we continued on to the actual shops. In doing so we passed what has to be the most pathethic snow park in the world. I'm sure, like me, ...

Day 12 - Nagano. Now we're cold.

... worth it.

We made it out of Seria alive, and after some other rather pointless wanderings throughout the shopping mall, we found ourselves at the starbucks downstairs for a warming coffee (or hot chocolate for the girls) just as it started to snow.
Again, and I've lost count of the number of times on this trip, we were the only idiots sitting outside, while everyone else sat inside looking out at the tourists who had obviously lost their minds. On the ...
