The rest of the "mystery associates" probably aren't even reading this forum and since their attendance isn't really a secret, here they are. I think the count is off because that should be it.

Thanks Alyssa, much appriciated http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif It was so much fun designing them,
and Chris is really a big part of them too! A great team to work with!

Unfortunately I won't make it to CJ http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif Too many huge expenses the next
couple of months. I'm sure you all will have a blast.

i envy you all who get to go to Japan!

I haven't been there in almost 20 years but I can recommend some places.

Since you are all making the effort to go there, don't forget to sightsee!

You gotta check out the electronics! Way more advanced than the US and some items, you'll never see here.
Go to akihabara, the electronics meccha of Japan and perhaps the only place you can haggle. If you can't, check out Yodobashi Camera or Bic(or Big) Camera - their version of Best Buy.

Cool toy store in the Ginza district is Hakuinkan - 5 floors of all toys!

Shinjiku is the red light district if you are into that....

Shibuya is a hip town near Shinjiku and has trendy stores and eats.

Harajuku, like the Gwen Stefani song is a cool place to see young Japanese teens garage bands rock out on weekends.

Roppongi has the famous Hard Rock Cafe tokyo and has just as many tourists as locals. Practically, everyone speaks English their.

Prepare to eat a $5-6 big mac as they have all the chains - McD's, Wendy's, KFC, Dunkin Donuts. For the adventurous, try Japanese fast food places Lotteria (actually a Korean candy company but makes fast food) and Mos burger (get a burger sandwiched between two rice ball patties instead of bread).

Like Noodles - Get the Ramen! my favorite. Chinese style noodles with a Japanese twist!

I posted this in the ticket section but I wanted to make sure people saw it.


I asked some questions of the organizers. Show start is 9AM on the 19th. Will call for tickets starts 9AM on the 19th If you've been to any convention or celebration before you'll recognize the huge problem with this process.

Im at work inappropriately using the internet now, but no access to my e-mail to look for any responses re this issue. I would assume that you wait in line to get your tickets, then wait in line to get in. If you're in Japan now why not start a line right away. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Landed yesterday and all setup in Shinjuku.

It's crazy here, and everyone is very friendly. Never felt so foreign in my life with the language barrier though :P I went to KFC this morning with my friend and it was American only by name. Ham and egg sandwiches were smothered in mayo, and some older woman chainsmoked 3 cigarettes in the course of 5 minutes. You definitely can't get this experience in the states. lol

Guess we'll see some scummers tomorrow at the convention.

I took the overnight bus last night (about 9 hours on the road) and have just arrived this morning. Was nice and cool when I got here but the heat has already settled in for the day.

The convention center is pretty big and even has an ag show on today in a separate area. It took me a while to find the CJ set-up (sections 1-3 if anybody sees this before heading out there).

Very cool. I didn't realize they were limited, but I passed anyway. They did drop the price to around $140 the last day of the convention. I was honestly shocked to see people wearing the hoodies outside in the 90+ degree heat and crazy humidity. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
