I've now arrived at the Royal Park Hotel in Yokohama, Japan after an 11 hour and 30 minute flight from London/Heathrow and 90 minutes on a train - jetlag is a wonderful thing smile_sniff

The trip from Narita airport to Yokohama was extremely simple - thanks to everyone that gave suggestions on how to get to Yokohama - the Narita Express train goes straight to Yokohama - very nice...

My hotel room is on the 58th floor, there's quite a view of the city from the hotel room.

Time to go exploring before I fall asleep... - There's a large, multi-level shopping mall attached to the hotel, I bet there's something interesting there...

Yep! - Found the Starbucks, that didn't take long....

Time for a Grande Vanilla Latte and a slice of Lemon Pound Cake (the cake looks interesting/different - but tasted pretty good, I might have to go back tomorrow for some more).

There's a huge ferris wheel close to the hotel, it's pretty windy out today so I doubt there are too many customers going for a ride.

The whole shopping mall is decked out in Christmas decorations, that was quite a surprise, I wasn't sure whether Christmas was celebrated in Japan or not.

I wonder if they have baked beans for breakfast here...
