No photos of the Fune no kagakukan, the japanese maritime science museum in Tokyo, because it turns out it shut at the end of september, a fact that isn't mentioned on their english-language web-page and is only mentioned in their japanese-language web-page in an image that's full of text I can't properly read and is in a .gif so I can't dump it through google translate or rikai.com
. So I went to Shinjuku instead, went up the tokyo metro offices, and got lost in the station and nearly missed my boat. [hint: if you have oedo line shinjuku station and oedo line shinjuku nishiguchi station within the same station complex and they go in different directions, directions to "oedo line" don't exactly cut the mustard]
Both Roy and Pat have been on my thoughts from time to time. It's not entirely real to me that I won't be able to tell them about the stuff I've seen.
