Since I haven't had much to eat all day and didn't have time to find soy milk, I chose beer with my bento for its nutritional value. Now heading for Nagasaki.

If you like ropeways there's a fine one in Kobe, just behind the shinkansen station. It terminates at a hilltop garden and exhibition centre. Apparently the site used to be a perfumery run by Dutch merchants, growing plants that benefitted from the altitude and local weather conditions.

My favourite Japanese ropeway is in Onomichi; it's a small-town kind of a cablecar but it's in my favourite example of small-town Japan so I'm biased on that score. I'll be in Japan after Easter at Hal-con in Omiya and I'll be making a side-trip back to Onomichi then.
