I then had a sunset drink in the Club Lounge, and as it is obscure, a second shot showing Mount Fuji:
I'm next on to the Tokyo Westin, then a one week Shinkansen journey around Japan to catch the Fall colors. My timing is near perfection, as the peak on Honshu and Kyushu should be here this coming week.
Among the coming highlights will be dinner at Hajime (it had 3 Michelin stars a couple of years ago, but just noticed it lost a star) in Osaka, the Nagasaki Peace Park in the Fall, and the Ocean Resort in Miyazaki. I'm being somewhat sarcastic about that Sheraton because I've now already been there twice and this spacious complex has close to nobody staying there. But there is an onset and excellent bio-park. On the way back I'll stop by Matsumoto Castle and say hi to Pearl's Gold Koi.
Well, hate to shock you, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average, again, broke an all-time high, up 91 to 17,810. Why? Something to do with better news from China and Europe.
