I somehow managed 5h45 of sleep on a 6h30 minute flight. Singapore’s excellent business class suites certainly help, as do ambience, melatonin and temazepam! :O
Always a pleasure to come back to Japan. After landing I will meet up with a colleague who flew up overnight from Sydney. Jam-packed day ahead as we navigate the Narita Express, a Shinkansen (Kodama) to Odawara, then the small privately owned Hakone-Tozan railway as it twists and turns on its climb into the mountains, and then finally the Hakone-Tozan cable car to reach our hotel (Hyatt Regency). After that, who knows? A soak in an onsen, a tour through the majestic mountain roads, a visit to the geothermal areas hear Hakone? We shall see.
