Arrive Tuesday 24 at 5:30am :( and will be staying at the Granbell, as per usual... Not liking the change of hotel, G!

I am also very upset to hear @Madame Buttonfly won't be there!


Leave Tokyo for Adelaide on June 3 (Friday).

The Granbel did it for me when they shut the bar at the back down.   I love Yokohama, it is on the sea and just my sort of place.  Eating is good and Yokohama has the largest China Town in Asia.  I can get into Shibuya in 40 minutes and I can actually swing a very large cat in the room and lie down in the bath at the Monterey....

Plus, I get onto the subway at the very first stop of the line, so I get a seat, there is 4G coverage all the way to Shibuya, so I can work all the way, which is what I would be doing if I was in Shibuya anyway....

Makes perfect sense!

Granbell rates have gone up over the past few years, along with their popularity...

Had to book a big boys room for a change!

Guy's what's the address of the shibuya Iron Heart? I leave the day you arrive but will visit the store if I can find it. Searched on Google maps and it shows me what looks like a residential address.

Is there a train back from Shibuya at 2 am?

I'm in Kojima NOW..... For non-Giles persons, Monday is the worst possible day to visit Jeans Street.....  EVERYTHING is closed, nearly. Me and my Japanese *girlfriend could barely find a a decent meal. Either way, I made it to IH yesterday and bought a second white 1600 and a UHF.

Bumpy roads are more fun to travel on!
