Oh, oh, oh what a gill.

Just a quick note. So far in Tokyo I have eaten sushi that was still alive and looking at me (I kept saying thank you to the fish), been to a number of tiny bars that seat only a few people at a time, visited the most amazing fish market and in a couple of days we're renting a car and driving into the mountains for a night at a hot springs Inn that you have to hike the final 2 hours to get to (through snow covered volcanic terrain with occasional steam holes) (they even have to hike in their food/supplies). I'll post some photos when I get back (I switched my return trip to Nov 12 (an extra 6 days)).
