Its been a week since I posted anything - never ever had a schedule like that before which was completely back to back. Schedule was so tight that I didn't even get time to finish my own stage presentation and just worked with what I had. My first priority as MC is to always make sure my guests look good on stage so all preparation and rehearsal time was poured into their slots instead of mine.
Also came down with a fever - not enough sleep for the past few weeks preparing for AFA and the schedule took its toll ><
Anyway - I'm back in Tokyo now and got a load of Anime Festival Asia Malaysia posts to come but first its the traditional Tokyo Arrival post which documents the 24 hours or so heading back to the land of the rising sun.
Regardless of whether you arrive at Haneda or Narita, you will see these shops just before you get on the trains (you have to go down to the train station if you are going to get a taxi or limousine bus) - here you can get rental mobile phones and a pocket wifi which costs about 1000 yen per day.
There is a huuuuge queue for the Narita Express but I recommend the Sky Liner if you can get one - the Narita Express previously (dont know about now) shared the same lines as other trains which is why it had to stop so often thus taking ages to get into the city even at regular times.
Anybody taken the Narita Express lately? How long it take to get into Shinjuku?
Question to folks who have been to Tokyo below.
One of my fave Japanese dishes - Tsukemen. This is where noodles is served on the side which you dip into the thick soup. When you have eaten most of the noodles, one of the restaurant waitresses will ask if you want some "Soup Wari" which is a soup stock that makes the soup in your bowl thinner for you to drink.
This dish is about 830 yen.
