After a day’s break, we were supposed to go back to Nagashima, but since our night’s lodging was in Yokohama, we went back to Nagoya after a hearty breakfast. Theoretically, we could have gone directly to the park with our suitcases, but since the return journey was to take place by shuttle bus to Nagoya due to the better departure times, we finally preferred to stow our luggage at the station and then take a return ticket to the park. The bus terminal is located directly at the station and has several levels, but the right departure bay is quickly found and the ticket purchase is, as always, quite unproblematic.
In the evening, after meeting Nicolas again in Nagoya, we took the Shinkansen directly to Shin-Yokohama and from there the local trains to Tsurumi Station. From there, it’s only a few metres to the Best Western. But I honestly don’t know if I would recommend this one, because the Best Western was by far the hotel with the smallest room on our Japan trip. In general, I have not had the best experiences with the Western chains in Japan. A Japanese business hotel is much more interesting and usually just as cheap, if not cheaper.
