This was early on in the 25 mile bike, at the Yokohama pier.

Yokohama has the biggest Chinatown in the world.. it was pretty big but the only food they seemed to have was pork buns and peking duck.
Hakone roomHakone room

Traditional tatami room. The mats to sleep on were in the closet on the left, they were actually pretty comfortable.

This was right next to our hotel.

In China, I was excited just to find a western toilet. Here, western toilets disappoint me, because I prefer the ones with buttons.

This thing has 3 different kinds of bidets all with strength settings, a heated seat, and a fan inside the seat of the toilet. Insane.

They have pirate ships that take you around the lake.

Us in front of the lake on the trail, with our automatic bikes. Those things were awesome.

Gora Park (or Gora Rark as the signs said).. it was a really big flower garden with a tea house off to the side where you could do a "tea ceremony" (it wasn't a full ceremony, you just ordered tea and sat on the floor)

This thing was about 4 inches in diameter, it scared the hell out of me last night. It was on the wall when I was walking down the hall to get a drink.

I believe Shanghai, with its 14 million people, has the largest Chinatown in the world. But Yokohama's is probably very large as well!

Clay, this is Walter... I've been to Shanghai.. it's bigger than 14 million, but actually the term Chinatown refers to a section of a city outside of China town that is highly populated by Chinese... so, a "Chinatown" can't exist in China, so Yokohama has the biggest... ok, end of my smartass rant. Bleh.
