Samantha in Japan

Archive for April 2009

It took weeks to find the time to do this, and then hours upon hours to finally get this done. But it’s finally here. The long-awaited picture album from Tokyo, Yamaguchi Prefecture, and beyond.


I apologize yet again for the absolute LACK of substance in this post. I’m in the midst of uploading my pictures from my camera, and due to the sheer volume of them, I’m just going to be making an online album and not going to be doing a more in-depth display like I usually do.

Because I’ve been slacking with the blog lately, I’m going to open up the floor for suggestions.

What do you want me to do in Japan?

I’ll be your guinea pig. Suggest some stuff, I’ll try to do it, and I’ll write about it. The restrictions are as follows:

– If it’s a specific place you want me to visit, it must be in the general Keihanshin region (Osaka/Kyoto/Kobe/surrounding cities) OR Okinawa (I’ll be going there at the end of May). I MAY be going back to Tokyo, but that’s a HUGE may. Don’t count on it. I get increasingly broke every day.
– Must not put me in physical danger. Like… approach a creeper on the streets of Osaka and threaten him while using Kansai-ben– yeah, that one’s a no-go.
– May be simple ‘write more about X’ requests if you know I’ve already done something you’d like to hear more about. This can include Tokyo stuff; I know last time I did a brief overview of some of the places I went/things I did, and if you want to hear more about something from there, I’ll write about it.
– I’m not eating natto. Just throwing that out there. Akan.

All right, now that we’ve got the guidelines established, go crazy!
