The Sun Rises Again: Fun with Landfill

(My one and only issue with not traveling alone is that I’ve less free time to post to this site from the road. So kindly allow me to fill you in on some more notable details and pics from my recent Tokyo trip…)

Day three in Tokyo brought the first real subway ride of our trip. LinLyn picked the best spot to be seen…

… While I second-guessed each step of our route. You try navigating a system with no transfers and few English signs!

Fortunately we reached Tokyo Big Sight without incident. The city’s convention centre is located on Odaiba, a tract of reclaimed land in the middle of Tokyo Bay.

I brought LinLyn there to wander through the aisles of a big annual antique jamboree. But an hour later I had seen everything and she was still looking, so I wandered upstairs to check up on my blog via this handy, coin-operated public computer.

As previously stated, I did not bring LinLyn to Japan to propose to her, but I did fall in love all over again—with this Japan-only bB, on display at the Toyota theme park just down the road.

There are no less than three shopping malls on Odaiba; last time I was at Decks they had, er—“decked” out the top level as a recreation of pre-WWII Japan. This time the top floor was all done up like Hong Kong, a strange coincidence considering my buddy Kevin was vacationing there with his wife that very same week…

LinLyn and I resisted the urge for Chinese food, and instead chose a Japanese restaurant with this commanding view of Rainbow Bridge.
