Too lazy to write much today. I had an awesome late breakfast-basically-lunch in some chain place. It was a big bowl of rice with beef and some really great seasoning. I totally want some more of that.
It’s always fun with planning. Make a small mistake here and there and it’s right away “way to go, Matt!” It’s a thankless job but whatever. Such is the lot in life of us planners. We enjoy the successes on our own and suffer the mistakes collectively.
Anyhow, things are great. We are heading to the Fuji area tomorrow. Can’t wait to climb on Tuesday!!
Also, in Japan, they ban smoking while walking on the street. What a great idea. There is so much more emphasis about living in a society in Japan, which would never fly in our individualist Western culture. People don’t even honk their horns in traffic (what little traffic there is).
Tomorrow is our first day of taking extended train travel. Time to get out into Japan! (but not before another traditional breakfast)
