Around a year in the making (& 24 in dreaming) , I finally got to scratch off a long-term "bucket list" item and go to Japan this June for about 11 days with some old friends from college. All I can say is it was the trip of a lifetime and I am so glad that I went. The kindness of the Japanese is unparalleled and the culture is amazing. Whether your a Japanese pop culture fanatic like myself or love their history, I highly recommend seeing the land of the Rising Sun yourself. I did 4 J-Rock concerts (1 was 6 hours long!! XD), 1 Castle, Maid Cafe's, Robot Restaurant, Shinkansen, Gundam Cafe, Hibiya Park, Ikebukuro, Akihabara, Tokyo, Shinjuku, Osaka, Shibuya, and much more... I took in as much music, art, culture, anime, and food as I could and I can't wait to go back, as it's a very special place... ;-)
THE BIG REVEAL!!
