Flying from BC back to London tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed everything goes okay, thankfully I didn't choose on option to layover at CDG on the way back.

Avoided death/terrorism/TSA fingering. Safely back in the UK, normal service has resumed.

I just got back to the USA.

I went with some friends from Undergrad. We went to Tokyo, Hakone, Osaka, Kyoto, and Nagano. Tokyo was amazing, one of the greatest cities I have ever been to. The other cities were ok. A lot of things were closed the last couple days I was there, unfortunately so I missed some sights I wanted to see. Now I have a calling to play Shogun: Total War.

So I arrived in Tokyo. Our first couple days were spent wandering around, waiting for everyone to arrive. I was close to Akihbara, which is basically like a giant Japanese version of chucky e. cheese. There were huge multifloor arcades, maid cafes, and electronic shops. I went to a couple museums and the fish market for sushi.

In honoka, I stayed in traditional Japanese housing and stayed in a hot spring.

In Osaka I wandered around a lot and went to a castle.

Kyoto was rather boring and I didn't do much there besides see some snow monkeys and wander around a zen temple. We were able to feed them.

In Nagano I did some hiking and saw some more monkeys.

I then finished in Tokyo were I saw more museums and went out clubbing.

What was the clubbing like? Do they actually pay attention to the "no dancing" rule?

Clubbing was ok. I went out twice in Tokyo. First time was decent, while the second time was awesome. We went to a large club full of foreigners. Almost hooked up with a Japanese girl there.

In Osaka things were rather lame. Full of awkward people. All the places had dancing.

Most were younger students but there were some older guys too. The club had a cover charge and some floors were more loungey.

Just tossing this out there, but I'm just super swamped coming down off the holidays. This isn't me planning on taking off for another 8 months or whatever, I'll be around a lot more in coming days.

Good to hear it, I was worried we'd lost ya again. The IRC misses you.
