Japan - a few more points  
* there is a 'water bus' (a river boat) that goes up the Sumida River. ended up taking it with mistressmuffin and her coworker and coworker's friend up to Asakusa to see the temple and shrine. that was very cool.

* i must have brought the winter with me because it snowed on sat - sun. granted most of it melted away.

* on a whim did a day trip to Hakone in order to relax in an outdoor hot spring (onsen).

* so there is a new Maid (well its not new per say) theme fad going on. especially in the Akihabara area. there is a Maid theme club, a maid theme bar, a maid theme cafe, a maid theme optomologist, and maid theme massage centers. Ended up getting a 30 min reflexology session at Mai Relax - Tokyo (some shots of the inside of the place as well as the staff). was very cute and relaxing. (and yes its an honest to god reflexology place).

* also had dinner at a new resteraunt with a vampire there - Vampire Cafe. owned by this group that does themed resteraunts (listing). anyways the food (especially the flaming roast pork... and it was with a flambe style where the butter was on fire) was really good. the drinks went with the motif... ended up having a really nice drink (cherry brandy, violet liquor, and lemon juice) that fit the meal quite well.

its been a nice vaca..:>

Damn. I had thought to go to the Vampire Cafe, but we never made it over there.

Where did you go in Hakone? (B and I stayed a night at the Kansuiro Inn..very nice evening.)

I want to go back already. ;)
