Land of the Rising Sun
I'm going to Japan later this month. It'll be my first visit there and I can't wait to see what it's like. Everyone I've talked to raves about Tokyo. I imagine it to be like NYC, but multiplied by ten or a hundred. I can't wait to see the Japanese kids all punk and goth and Victorian. I can't wait to eat soba and ramen and more soba and more ramen. I can't wait to see the shrines and temples and walk around the manicured gardens. I'll spend the bulk of my time in Tokyo, with a short jaunt to Kyoto. I'll be traveling alone, which is both exciting and daunting. I look forward to planning my day the way I want, but afraid I'll feel a little isolated.
Hopefully it won't rain while I'm there
