I agree , you must walk when you travel & I like seeing a city from the water ,either a Lake or River cruise .Sounds must have been hard like you enjoyed the bullet train ? Bet you enjoyed your next bed ,after sleeping on floor as Japanese do . Must have been hard ! ! We Aussies are spoilt with many things .Enjoy rest of your travels ,safe journey home ,shall be in touch . Thanks a million again for interesting blog . Love Norma
