Sorry we're not updating the blog, but we're not used to all the walking around, standing on trains and generally not being lazy. So by the time we get back to the hotel each day, we're exhausted and want nothing but to lie down and fall asleep. It's not that we've got nothing to post about, believe me. I just checked and it looks like we've got almost 900 pictures from all over Tokyo (and a handful from Chiba and Saitama), and we've also got some nice video we'd like to put up on YouTube if our connection would hold up. But for now, here's a quick photo of three GeGeGe no Kitaro cels we picked up today at Mandarake in Nakano. They were super cheap, at less than $15 for the three of them (1,260 yen), so we're happy.

Yakitori is a very common food here. It's grilled chicken on a stick, but they serve many, many parts of the chicken (heart, liver, skin, cheeks).
They say the chicken is much fresher here than in America, so you can eat the chicken half-cooked (like you might order a steak medium-rare). So, we gave it a try.
BUT... Ryan and I have pathetic American stomachs that can't take half-raw chicken, so we both spent the entire night taking turns on the toilet. :p
I want to go find some crackers this morning to eat.

Masako showed us around Tokyo on our first day... It was a wonderful time. She took us to a small town that was very off the beaten path, and we explored a few of the more popular sites as well.
This picture is in Ginza, outside of the Sony Showroom.
