First thing we did was go to the Empire State Building. Fortunately it was not very busy and we didn't have to wait in line very long. The view was of course magnificent, but very windy ;p After this we went to eat something at Wendy's, and then went… more »

Heej jongens!

Blij dat jullie goed zijn aangekomen.

Cool…op hotel in China town. :-)

Veel plezier daar nog, en zie dat ge daar ni van de eerste dag een indigestie oploopt met die gigantische menu’s hé. (En Sam… ge weet dat de deuropening van de living in ons nieuw huisje ‘maar’ 70 cm is hé. Zie dat ge nadien nog binnenkunt hé, hihi ;-) )

Greetz!

I’m hoping to catch a concert in December when I go back for my 4th visit. I’m hoping that either Hikki, Namie Amuro or Koda Kumi will be in action. It’s great that you’ve managed to see some fantastic concerts during the trips to Japan. I’m envious!

Today will the farthest point from Tokyo I've ever been. That is to Fukuoka which is at the other end of the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen at 1179km from Tokyo. Osaka is right in the middle, so I only traveled about 650km today (in only 2.5 hours). In… more »

hey! great pics! I too want to visit kyoto animation, as im a huge fan or Air.. were you able to look around inside the studios (like a tour, i guess) or just look from the outside?

Comment from: peter  

They don’t do tours and it’s mostly look from the outside. There is supposed to be a very small shop in the front portal of the yellow building but I didn’t really see it. But it’s nice to be able to see the building with the sign on it “Kyoto Animation” ;p

Japan has to have its own strange etiquette about escalators. In most parts of the world it is custom for the people who are not in a rush, to stand right, so that other people who are in a hurry, can go up on left. Well, Japan has 3 ways ;p In Tokyo,… more »
