We stayed in a dog friendly Ryokan(Japanese Inn) on the Saturday night of our little trip. The rooms had pet friendly tatami mats and the dogs were allowed anywhere in the inn, including in the private dinning room!! It was a good thing that we were dining alone as Jazz and Dixie's table manners leave a lot to be desired! There was a very convenient hook which we could tie them to so that they were just out of reach on the low dinning table. The meal was arranged so wonderfully on the table it was a shame to mess up all that hard work! After dinner the girls fooled around with toys in the room before going to bed early. The next day we were up early for a walk in -5。C temp!! We all froze our little toes off! Its the coldest we have been this winter, maybe ever! After a breakfast similar to dinner with all the lovely little dishes we set off for Jazz and Dixie's favourite dog run, Dog Field. However being winter all the lush green grass was gone. The girls still ran around like crazy in the cold with views of a snow covered Mt Fuji in the background. We had a wonderful weekend away.
