Took the shinkansen back to Tokyo today. Once again, Urabe Sensei and his wife were kind enough to come meet us at the station and once again they gave me a gift. They even bought tickets so they could go through the turnstile and walk me onto my train. Really looking forward to seeing them again next summer.

The train ride back was pretty uneventful, though at once stop an entire class of Japanese high school students got on the train escorted by their teachers. They were well-behaved, though, and pretty quiet.
Picked up the kendo equipment I dropped off in Tokyo a couple weeks ago. Repaired and good as new. Now all that's left is to pack and head to the airport tomorrow.
