So it looks like I went and disappeared for the better part of two weeks… Whoops! Hah, it turns out that being in Japan is just a great time, and walking around Tokyo for 14 hours a day (no exaggeration) takes a lot out of a guy. Ah well, if I wasn’t out having fun, then I wouldn’t be able to write about it… Eventually…
On that note, we ended up travelling within Japan for the very first part of our trip, and I ended up with a different “feeling” for this trip. Andrew was much happier–we saw nothing but sacred, irreplaceable things and places for like 10 straight days (occasionally stopping in at the Tezuka Museum or whatever), but I felt a little bit like I was waiting “for the good part”… despite the fact that everything I was doing was fantastic, interesting, and amazing. I can’t help it, I just really like otaku shit. :)
Because of that, I didn’t really take a ton of photos for the first part of the trip, and so rather than organize chronologically I’m gonna end up doing posts on places, people, or concepts, rather than a chronological recap. And I’ll probably start working on the first one on the plane, hopefully that means I post it in 24 hours or so. We’ll see how tired I am when we finally board.
On that note, I’m just about to board my flight at Narita. Gotta run, see you soon, Toronto.
