Sometimes Japan runs like a well oiled machine. We land. We collect our baggage. We go to the Toyota car rental counter. A shuttle bus takes us to the Toyota car rental place. We sign paper work. We're shown pictures of speed cameras. We get an all wheel drive Toyota Corolla with snow tires. We program the GPS for the Richmond Hotel (English GPS - woohoo!). We drive to hotel (about an hour from the airport). Our car is stacked in the juke box parking machine. We're checked into the hotel by the lovely receptionists. It is now beer o'clock.
