Continuing where I left off int he previous post, we spent our second day in Japan traveling to Nihonmatsu. But first we needed to make a quick stop at Ueno to pick up some SD cards, hard drive and tapes.

Street arcade next to BicCamera, a large electronics chain. The cost for items normally available in Australia were very similar. Other things that were “rare”, such as MiniDV Tapes, in Australia were cheaper.

Major Japanese train stations have massive escalators like these. There are several levels, each with it’s own different type of transport (subway, train, shopping center with taxi/bus stations, Shinkansen).

Stations are airconditioned but were still very hot.

I’m pretty sure this is a comic book.

Not sure about this one, but it’s not porn.

Lunch for the Shinkansen trip to Nihonmatsu. This is “Yakisoba pan”, roughly translated Fried Noodle Bread. It is very tasty.

Nic mentioned that Japan was a lot greener than he was expecting.

We stopped at Fukushima to transfer to a local train for the last leg of the trip. At least one of them looks like they are enjoying the trip.

PowerVehicles organised our accommodation at the Urban Hotel in Nihonmatsu. Very conveniently located next to the train station. They were also able to arrange a cheap hire car for us, this Nissan Cefiro. I think it was around 4,000-5,000 yen per day including insurance.
