We’ve enjoyed many trips on the Shinkansen (bullet trains). The first one today was from Hiroshima to Osaka – followed by two others leading us ever closer to the ski fields of Hakuba. Japanese rail transport is always on time, so efficient and oh so clean!
We had to take five trains from Hiroshima to Hakuba all up. As we got closer to the end of our days travel the snow got deeper on the rail tracks – even slowing down the last train as we approached Hakuba station.
The entrance to our lodge was well covered with a very large amount of snow – replenished regularly so it always looks white. There’s no dirty sludge here!
The outlook from our lodge is quite spectacular – even without the sun shining.
