Arrive Tokyo/Narita

We finally arrived at Narita airport just as the sun was going down. I got to see some of the southern part before it was too dark.

Getting through the airport was a breeze. My luggage was the first off, and there was no problems with customs.

Mr. Akasu and another gentleman picked me up, and drove me to the hotel.

On the way to the hotel, we passed the Indoor Skiing place. I was told that it contained a 300 ft. slope, and was open year round.

I was also amazed to see children, and single women freely walking or riding bikes around after dark.

I also noticed many vending machines, that serve food, beer, cigs, etc. They are all over the place!

We finally arrived at the Dai-Ichi Hotel Hikarigaoka around 20:00 . I was checked into Room 612, and said good night to Mr. Akasu.

I got to the room, unpacked and crawled into bed.

While laying in bed, I was channel surfing, and I came across a show that had people sitting in wooden tubs, and they would have liquid poured over them, and I think they had to guess what the mixture was.

Another scene had the contestants running through corn fields, and strapped to their back was a 6 ft long bamboo shaft attached to the persons back, with a little yellow flag attached. They would then end at a table which had different plates of food covered with tops, and once again they had to guess what it was.

I think I finally fell asleep around 22:00 P (Local)
