It’s a rainy day today. So it’s the indoors for the wifey. Packing up. Tomorrow, we will leave for Murakami at 615am (515am Sin) on a Shinkasen (bullet train). The tix cost about $300 per pax. Gulp. It will be a 3-4 hour ride there. Why so long? Well, it’ll be a series of train rides: Tachikawa-Tokyo-Niigata-Murakami. It’s another state. Our hotel will be by the sea. Stay tune.
