We’re going to Japan…probably

Rod is scheduled to go to Japan for work in May and I’m trying my best to tag along. It looks like things will all work out, but I’m trying not to get too excited. It’s not working very well. I keep thinking about all the amazing things there are to see and do in Tokyo. And the food. And the fabric. That’s where I lose control of my excitement level.

I’m the kind of traveler who likes to have things planned before I go. I like to know which sites I’m going to see and where everything is before I get there. I might not stick to that plan once I get to my destination, but I like to have as much research done as I can before I get there. I think that helps me manage my excitement – I feel like I’m doing something before the trip even begins. Is anyone else like this or am I just weird?

I’m getting concerned, though, because I’m having trouble finding shopping information for fabric/sewing type stores. Have any of you been to Tokyo? Any thoughts on must-see sites/stores/restaurants? I’ll most likely be on my own for a good bit of the trip, since Rod will be working and all, so I’ll be looking for all kinds of things to keep myself occupied.

I’m off to read more guidebooks….

  1. Get thee to a Tokyu Hands. Now, it’s 11 years since I lived there, so I won’t attempt directions/locations, but if you find one, you’ll be in browsing paradise for every form of craft/DIY you can imagine.

    Japan is fun fun fun. Take oooodles of money!

  2. Happy Easter to you and your family, Megan!
