So I'm leaving for Tokyo in less than eleven hours! I'm planning on keeping a log of my trip here so check back in the next couple of days for stories and pictures. It's been a dream of mine to travel to Japan since I was very young. I grew up watching Hong Kong kung fu and Japanese monster movies with my father. This was a great source of inspiration for me and one of my fondest memories. My father would comment about martial arts demonstrations he'd seen in his travels in the Navy. Stories of 90 year old men disabling ten attackers and breaking cinderblocks with the tips of their fingers. You can imagine what an impression this would have made on me!
Enough of the trip down memory lane. It's time for new memories to be made!
