Auld Lang Syne's a playing

Work'll soon come to a close, and then I'll have about a week to boldly go where I haven't gone before. I'm scrapping the FAQ idea: it's too time-consuming! I tried a new Pokémon game involving playing as a kid transformed into a Pokémon. You get a Pokémon pal too -- I chose (read: choose you) Pikachu! Yeah, that didn't last long. Then I tried a Rockman RPG, but that failed as well. So I give up.

I'm welcoming suggestions for where I should travel to in my last week. Anyone know cool places/things to do around Tokyo? I'm sure some of you do. Yeah, the only conditions are that it's around Tokyo (< 2 hour train) and that it doesn't cost a fortune. =)

Oh yeah, the title of this post. Japanese stores have a habit of playing Auld Lang Syne when they're about to close, and I thought that it fits this time quite well.

So you've visited all the places, yes? Shinjuku, Asakuza, Roppongi, Akihabara... I didn't go to Shinjuku I think, or one of those... hmm... ooh, go to the red light district, was that in Shinjuku? =) Take some pictures of the outside of those, and, if you dare, the inside of a soap bath....

Hey, I remember hearing about Shinjuku. They mentioned it once on the first season of Digimon, while the kids are on the subway. :P I wonder what's at those places...anyways, hope you have a good trip, where ever you decide to go!

Yeah.. I've been to all those places Bao. Maybe I should revisit some? Come to think of it, I haven't been to Akiba (Akihabara) this time in Japan. Maybe I should buy some of those weird USB accessories they have, like a USB duckie. Quack! Or a fan? =P

How about a USB coffee/tea warmer? But a USB fan is a good idea; keeps you cool in the summer.

Good idea Ricky!
