I'm back. The hotel is Himeji has no plug adapter for my laptop. They (and the tourist office) phoned around and there is no adaptor in all Himeji. Someone on the Internet said that they bought one at the Sadobashi store in Osaka so I went there today but they do not have the plug either. So, I'm using this loaner which is entirely in Japanese. I actually got these 2 pictures up - another miracle!
