Japan is in the middle of summer vacation, but I was at work today. I took the Ken-O Expressway and then the Kan-Etsu Expressway to Gunma, but even at this time of the year, the expressways are crowded, but there was an accident on the opposite lane of the Kan-Etsu Expressway, so the road was closed. I was driving slowly for more than 10 km because everyone was watching the accident and driving slowly in the lane on my side.
I managed to arrive safely, finished my work, and was on my way home when the Tokyo-bound lane was congested with traffic for more than 20 km, starting at the Takasaka SA. I had no choice but to get off the expressway and take the local road home. Ahhh, I am so tired!
It took me twice as long to get back home as it usually does, but having Konatsu there to greet me blew away any fatigue!
