Day 2 -- Racing the Typhoon to Kamakura for ancient samurai temples and a hope to glimpse Mt. Fuji.

The storm did not arrive until late that night, and was mostly blown out by the time it got to Japan, but wind picked up all day and mist and clouds threatened to obscure Mt. Fuji during our closest visit.

Day 3 -- Last round through Tokyo, including giant robots, puppet theater and a last chance to sort of see Fuji.

With a bit of an Earthquake in the morning, and typhoon remnants passing through at night, we skirt disaster and strike out for our last day in Japan. For now...
