What to expect or watchout for? Any experience from other A&M or OT members? So far the plan pretty much is, buy a rail pass, and book a cheapish room in Tokyo for the night I land. But that's pretty much it, The next 3 1/2 weeks is open. I will just be traveling with one other person. climb Mt Fuji, see the Hiroshima shrine Go to the shrine of the 47 ronin See akihabara EDIT:: and the Tokyo night life /end edit Visit some temples in yokohama / kyoto see osaka castle play the panoramic gundam game/ see the 1/1 scale rx78 I will also be meeting up with a friend who is already there doing archeology work for Berkeley, in a place called Aomori. Anything to do around there? My Japanese is not so great (2nd year student) so I don't think i will be able to rely on it for communicating complicated messages. Aside from that, any suggestions as to what else to do?
