Lady of the Lake

Part Two of My Japanese Adventure

Maintaining that elusive work-life balance has never been my strong point. I do enjoy writing about my Agile and UX experiences. It has never felt like work. However, even a workaholic such as myself needs to occasionally call time out.

Day 4

A new day, a new means of transportation. The small town of Kawaguchiko is the gateway to Lake Kawaguchi. Stumbling into the daylight following a two hour bus journey, food seemed an appropriate first stop.

Day 5

Today we leave Tokyo to continue our journey west. Hakone is a short journey from Tokyo. This is our first opportunity to ride the Shinkansen! For this unfamiliar, this is the famous bullet train that can reach speeds of up to 320km/h. Definitely puts the speed of my morning commuter train in London to shame!
