I think you're likely to get a lot of short entries while i'm here. 8)
Last night we actually had dinner in the hotel - Hideyuki picked, and it was a fantastic chinese restaurant. Course after course of deliciousness. I went out for a quick walk (10 minutes, maybe) afterwards, but then i succumbed to bed - it being fiveAM body time finally caught up with me. (I went to bed around 10pm local time.)
I woke up at 5am local time here. It was clear i was going to sleep no more - i could have gotten up to go to the fish market, but given the day i have ahead, i'm glad i knew i could sleep as long as i wanted. So i got up, put on the house yukata, and brewed a cup of tea. When i'm done writing, i will shower and head out for a walk before meeting Tim and Frank for breakfast at 8am local time. I really want to eat some noodles, one way or another, today.
