I'm really indebted to Yinghui, who invited me to this one-day road trip and slowed my descent into becoming a "hikikomori". Because of that, I woke up around 5 a.m. yesterday to get ready for my trip to Nikko (in Tochiji-ken)
It's about two hours away by car, which is definitely faster than the train or bus. But ever since I came to Japan, I get carsick easily (I'm way too used to trains). Coupled with the really awful turns, I more or less made myself sleep the way there and back (I'm not very good company).
