BEST OF - Akihabara

I was originally going to call this a series, but... Well, we'll see how that goes. This is a way for me to exercise my blogging power and summarize stuff for people who don't want to read through my posts to find stuff at the same time. I don't like to choose favorites most of the time, but it's kind of hard to think of any place quite as wonderful as Akihabara. As the nerd capital of the world (that's what I'm calling it) it is a perfect place for someone like me.


The Moral of the Story

I spent a month and a half in Japan, and I had lots of fun. I made many mistakes, good and bad. I learned many things. It took me more than a year to finish this blog.

So, what do I have to show for this? What will I do differently next time?


PS: The Return Trip

What's the worst part about going to Japan? The "going to" part. The "going back" part is just as bad, though. Here's how I survived, and, as a bonus, how about a hint to what the future of this blog holds?

The Grand Finale - Akihabara Fun Part 1

Hello folks, it's a long time in the making, but I've finally decided to continue documenting my journey during my last couple of days in Japan. 


Kappa-Bashi, The Kitchen Town

In the last couple of days I was in Japan, I had pretty much run out of plans, to be honest. After a quick Google job, I decided on a couple of places to drop by, and decided I would use the rest of my time to explore Akihabara.


Yoro Park - The Site of Reversible Destiny

On Wednesday the 17th, I visited what is almost certainly the weirdest place in Japan. A park in the remote town of Yoro, called "The Site of Reversible Destiny" is weird in name and in appearance. It's right smack dab in the middle of Japan, so I had to take the Shinkansen to get there. This is where the story of Yoro Park begins.
