Reached the breakwater at 8:00 a.m. but it was noon before we docked owing to Japanese official red tape. Mr. Inouye (?) as usual, met us and the whole party plus American friends, (Miss Howard, Mr. Bill Clark, and Mrs.) went off to a substantial luncheon. Its about freezing outside.
After luncheon, R[oxas].O[smeña].M[ontinola].& S[abido]. left for Kyoto and Tokyo by train. I spent the remainder of the afternoon shopping.
Dined on board, and then Tirona, Kalaw, F[ernandez] and I went ashore for a change including dancing at the D (?) Club
