Right, stay away from school gates! Don't want to get arrested by mistake! :)

Brekkie is why they guard the school gates.
- I'm not Jesus, but I can turn water into Kool-Aid.
- A Sergeant in motion outranks an officer who doesn't know what the hell is going on.
- A demolitions specialist at a flat run outranks everybody.

I spent a week in Hamamatsu, for work. It's a very nice place. The town has a strong music vibe to it, as the Act City Music School is there. Flew into Nagoya and took the train to Hamamatsu the next morning. I didn't get to explore Nagoya, but I've heard good thing about the city too.

Looks like I'll be heading back to Japan late next year, in Tonami and Toyama.

Funny tangential story:

My best friend (and our guild's #2 hunter) married a Japanese woman. They met while she was studying abroad and she decided to stay.

A couple years ago, they visited her home town, and she went back to her all-girls middle school to visit some teachers and old friends. Since it was an all-girls school, my friend was unable to go on school grounds, so he bummed around a bit near the grounds. After a while he got bored and just sat in a shady staircase nearby. He realized after a while that he was a man in his late twenties hanging around the gate of a private all-girls school, and if the guard asked him what he was doing, the honest reply in his mumbled Japanese would have been "My wife's in there."

He hung out at a convenience store for a while after that.

Aaaah, Japan! I want to visit again! :)

I spent 5k € in four weeks while living/eating/traveling for free for three of those...

The JR card is a must! You will go by train or subway everywhere over there, it's well worth the cost! Climbing Mt. Fuji was awesome, I recommend it...

Also, it's fun to keep a look out for fun translated signs!

"Carrying in into a pet's gondola refuses a cat, a dog, etc." was my favorite...
HUZZAH! How many points do I receive? :D

At the airport on my way at the moment! :) Will be staying in Tokyo for a few days with a friend doing a PhD at uni there, before exploring the rest of the country.

Free internet at Hearthrow provided by Zurich insurance. I suppose that means they are sponsoring this post?

Hopefuly I'll have pictures and internets and stuff while I'm out there, see you all in three weeks otherwise! :)
