I knew he sounded familiar: He did the OST for the iPhone version of Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu.

So it turns out my bag comes to 20.1kg, or "take out a change of clothes and I'm sorted".

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.

No real updates will be coming for a few days, because the place I:m staying at doesn]t have wireless.

After I got off the ferry I went to the osaka human rights museum and up tsutenkaku. The osaka human rights museum aka liberty osaka is an interesting place; as near as I can figure it's setting out to normalise and contextualise cultural diversity and immigration by showing that, y'know, japan has had a lot of immigration and cultural diversity all along, from asuka era onwards. So it's got bits on the ainu and the ryuukyuuans and the korean population and the burakumin [marginalised workers in leather, &c], and saying, "look, you got this food from korea and this small-manufacturing economy from the burakumin; this diversity got you what you love about your city/you are as a minority at the heart of this city" sort of thing. I only got in shorty before closing, though, so I didn't get a good look.

After that I went up tsutenkaku, which is the most impressively twee and tacky thing I ever did see.

Shinkansen! And arrival in Tokyo: this is from two days ago. I actually think they're not that comfortable [somewhat better than a nice bus], although maybe it's just 'cause it's the oldest high-speed rail in the country. After this there's a gap 'cause new camera: Tokyo hasn't been kind to me.
