Today I planned to visit the old Samurai town of Kakunodate then later the famous Nyuto Onsens. To do this required a really really early morning start.

This day turned out to be a good and bad day. Although the bad can sort of be looked at in a good light.

I started my morning with some Orange Juice and headed off to Kita-Yamadera station to visit the snowy town of Yamadera.

Having had only 3 hours sleep the previous day I still managed to get up before 9am I guess. The capsule hotel does not allow guests to stay in their capsules at all between 10am and 4pm. Today I was to visit my friend Adrian who teaches English in the small city of Nasushiobara 2 hours north of Tokyo.

Shibuya Crossing at night

It’s been about 6 years since I’ve last been in Japan and I must say it’s great to be back! Today I start my morning by checking in to my capsule hotel to get rid of my bags and diving straight in to the busy alleyways of Tsukiji Fish Market for breakfast.
