Day 10 - Last day in Tokyo

Day 10 of my Japan trip was spent packing up and actually buying the stuff that I wanted and checked out the pricing yesterday.  The list wasn't extensive I only wanted the new iPod Touch and a steam making device. (BTW This is my first iPod I never ever considered getting one prior to this!) The others who where just visiting the show with me wanted new watches because they where stunned at how relatively inexpensive top brands cost compared to Australia. 

In all seriousness there where a lot of other places I went to on this particular trip but haven't written up because I could go on for pages, so these are what I  consider the highlights.  All in all it was another great trip something different from other nearby Asian countries.  Whether you start in Tokyo or Osaka give it a go. 

(In light of the 2008 and current world financial crisis you may find Japan now expensive - it is purely due to the changes in currency - but it is no more expensive than any other country at this point in time.)

Overall a great place to go for a holiday, try the local food, amazingly clean, very polite, modern and paper saving toilets, lots of interesting gadgets to buy even if you don't know what they are.  On the surface its a good mix of old and new,  perhaps that world should have a closer look and consider integrating the the best parts of Japan.

So that's it for now on my Japan trip.  I'll be proof reading all my previously published pages now and adding stuff which forgot to add.  However that will take some time because I really need to do more updates to the content on the Hayabusa.
