Japan - Part 1
5th station of Mt Fuji. This was day two of the Japan trip. We arrived at Narita airport at 5pm the previous evening. I was having minor (hidden) anxiety attacks about how to get from the airport to the Ikebukuro bus stop and then to our ryokan. I didn't realise Siena had amazing navigational skills, and armed with the map, she guided us through busy intersections and side streets accurately and confidently. I hadn't ever slept on a futon before and actually found it really comfortable, or that could have just been pure exhaustion from the flight and bus ride. We were up bright and early the next morning to visit Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Hakone.
