So I'm now up to the 5th level, and had a corn and sake:
By the way, there is a lot of snow at the 5th level:
The lunch was bento, and I had No Shrimp. Our bus held 40 from the world over. Iliana among a giant cherry blossom tree at Hakone:

The tour ended just in time for me to hurry back to my hotel to have my free drinks at the Westin Tokyo Executive Club:
Ryuta has been here 20 years:
I asked him to check his hotel computer to find out how many times I've stayed at the Tokyo Westin, and he determined: 25 stays and 61 nights.
If you're keeping up with me, two nights ago I had an extravagant, but nostalgically appropriate dinner, at New York Grill of the Park Hyatt, which is also 20 years old. The cost was four times that of last night, Lawry's The Prime Rib. Tonight, in exponential retrogression, I went to:
The cost? About 10% of Lawry's, if I don't count the Yebisu beer, which I stole from the Executive Club to have this meal in my room. Is it possible to get any lower? Stay tuned. Tomorrow I cut the cost by a factor of four with another beef meal for lunch. You won't believe this. Further I've been coming to Japan for forty years, and I have never had a day when I had nothing planned for the next day...tomorrow. Well, actually, I now have one thing: a beef meal much cheaper than Burger King's.
