Happy Holidays! It’s been just about a month since my trip to Japan. And it was a great trip. It was short, packed, and never a dull moment. Everyday was packed with fun seeing friends, shinkasen, sightseeing, and shopping. I got more done and saw more places than any of the previous twenty trips to Japan. I would get to every city on my list-Karuizawa, Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Osaka. I would get to almost every shop on my list. And there were great unexpected moments, finds, and experiences. Godzilla was at every turn and stop from the start of the trip to the end. My trip begin with my departure from Philadelphia International Airport headed toward Detroit for the 12 hour flight to Narita Airport. My travel got off on the right foot when Godzilla greeted me at my gate. There was a display featuring items from a local toy collector.
