Blessed are the geek: for they shall inherit Japan

21 08 2010

So, I recently had a friend come to stay for a few weeks who enabled me to indulge a bit in my geekiness.  Here’s a few highlights of what we did –

Jack Daniels Ribs at TGI Fridays in Yokohama.  Yokohama also included a ride in a Ferris wheel, the Yokohama Port museum, and fireworks!

TWO days at Disneyland and a night in the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel (and heat so bad that no one came to either and we got to ride the cool rides at least twice each!).

The Ghibli Museum in Mitaka (where we learnt that the Catbus has all his bits, and was making Kittenbuses), and Nakano’s Mandrake store (for some very geeky shopping – now the proud owner of an Utena figurine…).

Photo taking in various places around town, like Shinjuku (above) and Ginza.

Beer! in large amounts! at a summer Beer Garden!

Tobu World Square, now with a Sky Tree miniature (above), and the Obama family at the White House miniature!

The Gundam statue in Shizuoka.

And kitties! at a Cat Cafe in Akihabara.

And also lots of shopping.  Lots and lots 😀
