Tokyo Bound…

For me, Tokyo seemed exotic and unknown. I have no connection to the language or the culture. So I knew I wanted to go and experience something completely different and outside my European comfort zone. I’m preparing for a trip in early 2010 so started doing some research. Below are some sites I found during that research. I haven’t put them to the test but reading sites about Japan, looking at maps, understanding the various prefectures that make up Tokyo made it a little less unknown. Hello Kitty, here I come!
