Hayakawa river at Hakone

Still not a Big City Person

Tokyo was OK, but Hakone is wonderful. the montains are stunning and taking the trains and cable cars through them is like going through the green hills of home. I bought an ice cream cone from a lady in Hakonemachiko (I think the shop was named CHAKA) and the five minutes it took to eat while looking at Lake Ashi and the mountains surrounding it were the most peaceful I’ve had for a long time. I am going to come back and spend a couple of weeks visiting the rural areas and leave the loud and flashy streets of Ginza and Shibuya to those that like them.

They’re everywhere!

Awwwright, on the first plane and on my way to Tokyo!

Sooooon
