|Entrance to apartments|
The apartment where Karyn and David live is above a Pizza Hut. No, we never had any pizza! Who wants pizza in Japan?! To the right of the Pizza Hut is this entrance to the apartments. There is a locked door for security so no surprise visits.

After depositing my luggage at the apartment we went out to eat at a nearby Nepalese Restaurant. Nearby means that we walked a ways but did not get on a train. This is what you do when you do not have a car. It requires more time management and a lot of exercise, a totally foreign idea to most Americans!
The owners of the restaurant obviously have seen Karyn & David before. We were warmly greeted and well fed. The train station is just a few steps to the right in this photo. The trains rumbling overhead totally add to the overall ambiance of the place! The food was yummy though.
After the meal it was back to the apartment and BED! Yes.....but it was difficult to get to sleep. The excitement of arrival and the time change messed up sleep the whole trip. That's just one of the hazards of international travel. Plus it's just not your bed at home. In fact, this was a futon on the floor, Japanese style. It was an immersion experience. 8^)
Now that I'm home sleep is still a mess. Good that I'm retired and can take my time about adjusting!
