Totemo samui!

Japan is cold. Very cold. And beautiful. And endlessly interesting. And cold.

We are about to head into the mountains tomorrow to stay in a monastery. It promises to be beautiful and very cold. 

No surprise but among the first few phrases we've committed to heart is 'samui': it's cold.

My trick to not feeling the cold works just like altitude sickness - go spend some time in temperatures that are much much colder. Then the body feels so grateful you don't suffer it any more :-P
