    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    I must say I've never seen so much to look at or read on the internet about any other place I've been to. Don't know how many 25 Things to do in Tokyo's I've seen and they all seem to have different stuff.

    I'm not known for getting excited but I'm counting the days :cool:

    Ghibli museum tickets will need to be booked months and months in advance, just a heads up.

    This happened to me on my last trip. Absolutely gutted, as I wanted to take my family there. I have been there on a previous solo-trip, and it's an amazing place.

    When you're in Japan you can always try and get a ticket from the ATM machine within 'Lawson' shops. I did try this last time, but couldn't find 4 free ones for my family. Maybe you will have some luck if you just need 1 or 2 tickets instead.

    There's a PDF on how to use the ATM floating about, will have a look in my Evernote for it...

    Bad luck. I've been lucky enough to go four times now (first was just for me, then I took my brother when he came over for my wedding, then one for my kid and family . . . ah maybe only three).
    Haven't been for about seven years according to this video.

    My daughter is now 10 and the other girl is a crazy boozy 22 year old.

    I really want to go back to Japan :( I'd go either north or west this time.

    Tbh, coming from London, Tokyo was different but not that different to visit. I needed to go there but now I have I don't really want to go back. What I enjoyed was the places I went through when travelling: overcast ferry ports, high streets in the suburbs, pine trees around mountain bus stops, tiny shrines that no tourist would be arsed with, art galleries in the middle of nowhere, shit rainy platforms while waiting for the JR.

    Coming back this time has so far been odd due to the fact that it doesn't seem in anyway odd at all. I guess I need to travel further than Tokyo.
    My daughter is watching all the cartoons she already watches at home.
    Nice to have affordable fags but I'm already missing English milk.
    And it's fucking hot.
    Got graves to visit today and tomorrow. Potentially depressing. Not sure how I am going to react.
