On The Train To Koyasan

This is from towards the end of my trip, while I was on my way to Koyasan for the evening. Unfortunately, this was the stretch where I was under the weather, so that part of the trip was a little less than great.

Live In Shibuya

I don't have a ton of photos of myself in Japan, but here's one of me with some expat folks I met in Tokyo. They're a crew of primarily Americans with a Brit and (if I'm remembering correctly) one Japanese guy, all of whom came to see Shonen Knife play in Shibuya the same night I did. If there's one thing that seemed to be a recurring theme in Tokyo, it was how easy it was to fall in with a group of English speakers for the evening in the course of whatever I was doing. No photos of Shonen Knife unfortunately (or Jittering Jinn, the great band that opened up for them), since I had to drop my camera bag in a locker outside the club before I could go in.

At The Tokyo Dome

They sell whiskey at Giants games, which is only slightly strange from an American standpoint, especially compared to some of the food sold at the game.

Back from Japan! Desperately in need of sleep! And with tons of photos to sift through.
