Tokyo, here I come !

Posted on : 27-04-2010 | By : Nathan | In : Travelogue


tokyo tripThis is my 1st post in years, so I may be a little rusty. I am heading to Japan for a total of 11 days.  Japan has been #1 on my list of places to visit, so this is literally a dream come true.  I will be spending 4 days in Kyoto and about a week in Tokyo. I am really interested in the ancient cultural side of things, as well as all of the cutting edge futuristic side as well. Some  activities include:

- Cultural districts & temples
- Sumo match (already have tickets)
- Climb Mt. Fuji
- Visit the Sony store
- Tokyo-Disney
- The world-famous fish market

I will make sure to upload images and make posts as often as possible. Be sure to leave comments if you visit the site, just to let me know you stopped by. This should be a pretty good trip, and while I will be working, I am going to try and enjoy myself.

My buddy Derek (who is stationed in Japan) is going to be accompanying me on the trip. Actually, he pretty much set everything up, so I guess I am actually his side-kick. He organized the hotels, trains, sumo, and everything. I just had to use some frequent-flyer miles and get over there ! He even gave me a little “mission” package with a pre-programmed cell-phone, yen, tickets, and everything I need once I step off the plane. Thanks Derek, for putting all this together!

Well, I’ve gotta to pack, the plane leaves in 18 hours ;)
