Okayama
Day 6 - 11.26.8

First I have to apologize for the lack of pictures. Every single time we left the hotel I forgot my camera in the room, so most of these pictures were taken by Cat with her iPhone. The ones that I actually took with my camera were either from our hotel window or from inside a bullet train traveling 180 mph. I always forget my camera :P.

Boo! The last day of the trip. We hit the bookstore one last time before heading to the train station. These two trains were sitting there when we arrived.



Inside the train station at Shin-Osaka, I think. 


Taken from inside the train looking out of the window.


The Green Car inside the bullet train (Nozomi). The Green Car is a reserved seat car. It is more expensive, but it is definitely worth it. Check it out.



More shots while looking out of the window. 
















Mmmmm, candy.




Upside down doggie cookie thingy.


These are the 3D cards that I received from some fans at the show. I was totally blown away with these. I also got a really cool photo album. I'll have to try and post a picture of it soon. Thank you again!









Well, that concludes our awesome trip to Japan. I plan on going back soon, and I have actually been seriously considering moving there one day. Cat has been wanting to move there for many years, and now I understand why. I already know some words and phrases from watching anime and reading manga, but since the trip I have started learning more Japanese. I bought My Japanese Coach for the DS, and we have the Japanese Rosetta Stone program. Maybe in a couple of years I'll know enough to get a job there. Who knows.

I just want to thank Ron Foster and all the people at Wizards and at the Okayama convention center for allowing me to visit Japan. I will never forget it.

Daarken! Stop making people jealous!

I read that you're interested in learning Japanese. I've studied the language for a while now (though by no means good at it)... here's a site that I found to be super useful. I learned so much just by memorizing what's on the site:

It'd be too amazing if you start working for a Japanese game company and we see your work in Japanese games, which I've long been a fan of (curiously I play mostly Japanese games). Good luck!
