Where in Japan is toddashi?  
Basic itinerary for reference.

Tuesday, August 14, to Wednesday, August 15: Fly to Japan.
August 15: Check into hostel in Tokyo.
August 16: Begin shopping. Possibly buy a laptop in Akihabara.
August 18 & 19: Comic Market at Tokyo Big Sight.
August 19: Overnight train to Sapporo, Hokkaido
August 20: Shuttle to Onsen, check in, and enjoy hot springs. Possibly mail a package home.
August 21: Check into much cheaper hostel in Sapporo.
August 23: Overnight train to Osaka.
August 24: Hang out in Osaka, try to pick up Kansai-ben (local accent). Overnight train to Kokura station.
August 25: Stay in Kitakyushu, Kyushu island. Meet my penpal's family.
August 29: Overnight train to Yokohama.
August 30: Check into hostel near Worldcon.
September 2: Check into party room at Worldcon. Set up and show off fan videos in English!
September 3: Train to Narita airport. Fly home. Arrive home same day!

All my reservations except for Kitakyushu are at least in progress. The onsen and party room each cost more than all the nights in hostels combined. So did the rail pass.

I have a lot of directions to look up.

If you can find it, can you go to Lush in japan and bring me back the two ballistics that they have in Japan and not here?

I'll see what I can do.

Btw, trade you a book for a passport case...

I took the shuttle to work today. It would be easier on a day I drive to stop by after work.
Nikithespatula on July 25th, 2007 06:35 pm (UTC)
tomorrow then?
ashi: give wayashi on July 25th, 2007 08:29 pm (UTC)
Hmmm... maybe I'll drive to work Friday. :) I feel lots better when I don't drive to work.
Nikithespatula on July 26th, 2007 01:29 am (UTC)

ashi: fate-nanohaashi on July 26th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
Well, I could drive up after taking the shuttle back to me car tonight...

You're doing the Saturday and the Sunday? Hmmm, I was only going to go for one day, probably the Friday. Is it really worth spending two days at Big Sight? Have you been to a Comiket before?

Re: Comiket
I do have a significant shopping list from various friends, and I've heard you can find different small circles there on different days.

I do plan to leave a bit early on Sunday to catch my train to Hokkaido and miss some of the crush of fans leaving.

I haven't been to Comiket before, and in fact, this is my first trip to Japan. I have talked to people who have been there, and I've watched Genshiken's portrayal of it.

I'll post more about Comiket once I make my attack plan. I'll also post my Japanese cell phone number once I get one.
