  1. I searched all over Tokyo, even tried Akihabara, no joy. In the end I gave up looking. Ended up finding one in a ski shop in Hakuba Woohoo!
  2. Hi guys and gals, My wife and I went to Hakuba in January and loved it. Our Japan experience has really changed us, even now; all we seem to talk about is Japan. We are keen to go back again next year and for the most part I am quite comfortable about it.

  8. My wife and I were genuinely moved by the country that we saw in January. The places and the people. I have been to many places around the world and no place has moved us like Japan. We will be there for sure next January. And the one after that and the one after ..... etc.

  10. now that there is no current death and destruction, the Aus media have indeed gone off it. Charlie Sheen is no longer winning and it seems that the folks in the middle east are bombing each other again / still. No news on Japan of any substance in the last few days.
