Trip starts on Friday! Queries:
1) Suggested reading material? I'm going to be on a train for a week! And on planes for 8-12 hours at a time! And maybe also some downtime in Japan while Jono's working. Any suggested reading? I like stories with strong plot and character development and minimal infodump. I just acquired a Kindle (the recent price drop finally made it within my "impulse purchase" range), and have on it: A Game of Thrones, The Name of the Wind, and Guns, Germs, and Steel.
2) Postcards? Feel free to comment or email with your address.
3) Tokyo suggestions? So we're spending 1 weekend in Nagasaki and 1 weekend in Tohoku, but during the week, Jono will be working, so it's going to be me exploring Tokyo by myself during that time. Any suggestions of places to go, things to do?
