I JUST BOUGHT A TICKET TO GO TO JAPAN!
A (relatively) short trip, I'll be there exactly one week (from 2/25/10 to 3/4/10) The agenda so far is:
- Crash with my buddy RameNate and drink beers in Golden Gai, eat ramen & see shows, ride bikes, read and discuss manga (and translations thereof).
- Hang out with other friends in the area, like The Notorious I-Shi-I, Mr. MCVMCV, the Tokyo Scum dudes, and other friends!
- See the AX gallery show at Billiken Shokai gallery, featuring original art by dozens and dozens of mangaka featured in AX over the years (Including Suehiro Maruo, Yusaku Hanakuma, Takashi Nemoto, and basically everyone else we've ever posted about on Same Hat).
SO PUMPED RIGHT NOW! I'm going to pick up a lot of goodies from TACO CHE, and will definitely have giveaways and contests when I get back for you guys... along with tons of photos. If you have any recommendations, lemme know in the comments or on the Same Hat Guide to Everything!
