|東京へ来た (From Outside Tokyo Station)|
The first Tokyo post does not have very many pictures, unfortunately, because photographs were not permitted to be taken at the JDK Band Super Live concert in Nihonbashi Matsui Hall, so I will have to post various Nihon Falcom pictures from around the web. We arrived in Tokyo on Friday evening at around 5:15. I had the hotel address memorized so that I would be able to tell the taxi driver how to get there, but I made a mistake in the address and it was difficult to get there. Our hotel was in the Chuo ward of Tokyo in the Nihonbashi area, and I thought the name of the Chome (neighborhood) was Horidome, so the taxi driver could not find the address and he dropped us off in Nihonbashi Honcho (the main Nihonbashi area). The name of the chome is actually Nihonbashi Horidome, and that is how it has to be found. Because of this difficulty, it took 2 hours to locate the hotel, even though it was very close to the station. Luckily, though, this was our only travel difficulty during the entire Tokyo trip.

The JDK Band experience was highly enjoyable and I would love to be able to attend another JDK Band concert. I picked up my 那由多の軌跡 (Nayuta no Kiseki -- the latest entry of the Legend of Heroes franchise which was just released last Thursday) shirt at the concert, and the game shortly after. That was all we did Friday night, as it was pretty late by the time we returned and we were tired from the Shinkansen ride, the hotel-search, and the concert.
The next entry chronologically would be our adventures in Tama Town, but I am preparing something special for that, so keep posted for Tokyo Tower tomorrow!
