The worst 3 dispositions.....
18.09.2008 - 19.09.2008 -17 °C
Faced with my last official day in Tokyo I decided I would take a visit to an authentic Onsen, an outdoor spa bath......blah blah couldn't find the place (I swear they only translate signs to English if they want the custom!) Consequently the rain and humidity had me feeling rather sweaty, greasy and smelly, my 3 worst dispositions.
In the afternoon it seemed the grey sky was here to stay, plus I had my large rucksack which I did manage to deposit in Tokyo station (did I mention this is the size of Waterloo, Victoria, Kings X, Bank and Oxford Circus stations all rolled into one....plus Canary Wharf for good measures!) So I headed to the "Piccadilly" Cinema where Hancock was showing in English, I just couldn't face another day Louis V spotting!
Shinkansen Bullet trains are awesome! When the train reaches the end of the line about a 100 cleaners board the train and within 5 minutes turn the whole train around, literally, the seats swing round so you always face the direction of travel! Plus they replace each headrest cover with a new clean starched one, wouldn't get that on the 8:45 Basingstoke to London Waterloo would you!
In Nagoya I met my cousin James, his wife Kayte and some of their fellow teaching buddies, after dinner we did like any normal Japanese person, Karaoke! Woo hoo, in Japan their karaoke isn't like a pub in England, they hire small rooms for themselves (no seriously!) one-on-one sing offs or groups of friends.....great time and stumbled home at 6.30 am, hardcore!
