I've lost count.

Anyway...time to head over to the Ueno train station to catch the Shinkansen to Sapporo! It's an over-night train so hopefully there won't be too many surprises discovering how the sleeper trains operate over here. ^_^;;

It's off to the English Language Debate Competitions this morning. This is the 10th competition of parliamentary style debates put on once a year by the ESUJ.

But...what about yesterday? That was a lot of fun out and around Tokyo with a local ex-pat that we got to meet 5 or 6 years ago. Midday we meet up in Ueno and head over to the Shitamachi part of Tokyo with it's much more quiet, winding narrow "roads" winding our way back over to NenNekoYa for more shopping. After getting our fill of cats we head back downtown for something complete different.

Among the many unusual aspects to this place, one of the newest things to happen has been the Maid Cafes of Akihabara. All we managed to do was get a glimpse inside one as the queues to get in were a bit long and the what and how of the "system" was unknown to us at the time. The outfits were quite something though. taihen omoshiroi desu ne...

By this time my jet lag was kicking in...again...and I'm afraid I didn't last much longer before having to crash back at the room. DOUBLE deep sigh...
