Well, our flight was delayed 1 and a half hours, and lucky us, we were on the plane. Before that, not everyone got a seat assignment. Guess who was one of the last four people to finally get a seat?! Anyway, once the flight got going it was fine. We arrived later than we were supposed to. Our escorts for the night, former Fulbright Scholars in the US, took us to a local place for dinner. Our escort was Nayoka-san who went to Texas in 1966 to learn to teach English. At the restaurant, I had grilled unagi (eel) and tried bean curd with sesame. Our rooms are fabulous, and as promised from the reading I did, the toilets are quite something. Hopefully I’ll be able to download a picture. The seat is heated! No more bathroom talk. I just looked at the clock and I have officially been awake for 24 hours. It’s time for bed. More adventures tomorrow!

Hmmm ... it sounds like you got western toilets ... lucky girl! I'm still waiting for the blog when you're introduced to the traditional Japanese kind ... :)
Glad to know you arrived safe and sound!
