Today was a day of quick changes as I prepare to leave on Wednesday. I decided to ditch my bag and order a new backpack. It won’t come until the day before my trip. But it’s worth the wait. I really don’t want to be encumbered by luggage when going from city to city. Minimize your load when going to Japan, especially Tokyo. You will be exhausted no matter what. So prepare wisely. Last minute changes and decisions are always a part of planning a trip. Here’s a sample of the new bag I ordered. It has a tighter profile, designed as a carryon and TSA check, holds electronics and clothing.

Today is the 54th anniversary of Mothra vs Godzilla released in 1964. MosuGoji along with the film is consider one of the best and favorite of all Godzilla movies. Also in the news, X-Plus posted images of upcoming releases which include the anticipated 30cm Yuji Sakai Shin Godzilla. I’ve been waiting for this guy. It has a July 30 release date.
