Tokyo planning  
Following a very excited phone-call with Cat on Friday night (tolerated by the ever-patient Andy), I spent an unauthorised amount of weekend time planning my trip...

I picked up Lonely Planet's guide to Tokyo which actually included one page (out of 272) headed 'Tokyo for free'! I now feel armed to take on the scary $$$$ Japanese world. Actually, it seems like a very good/fun guide - Cat, it includes a breakout box on 'Cosplay'!!

Friends have already started banding around to suggest 'survival food' products to bring with me. These include rice and couscous mixes, muesli bars, porridge and other oat concoctions, noodles etc. Tins are going to be prohibitively expensive, but sealed dried fruit could be ok. And a large jar of vitamin supplements.

Clarification: tins prohibitively HEAVY, not expensive (money on my mind!)

Tokyo for FREE!!!!!!! (stun!) What did it say????
Since it was in the guidebook, we are totally going to do cosplay! *clings to excuse!*
Another thing you should investigate is the Japan Rail Pass. You can only buy it overseas, but it lets you travel all over the country for one fixed price - maybe useful since we are going to Nagoya and Osaka!

In further developments, Moon Child comes out on the 19th of April, so there is a slim to fair chance it will STILL BE RUNNING WHEN YOU GET HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *_*

This holiday gets more and more $$$! A movie? That's like a month's wages, right? But... essential (if still playing).

Are we *really* going to both Osaka *and* Nagoya? Wouldn't it be more sensible (affordable) to just go to one?

Am paying for airfare this week so much brokeness. But also means I'm definitely coming. Will have to discuss plans with you again soon - good luck buying Gackty tickets on Sunday!!!
