Back to Tokyo on the longest (5 hour) Shikansen trip from Hiroshima. I took a detour to Hakone to experienced some outdoor hot springs. I caught Jimi Tenor at a Finish art night featuring Jimi, another band, and short films. Fortunately I met 2 Japanese girls who were great to talk and lived near where I was staying so we shared a cab. I also took in the trendy districts of Shibuya, Harajuku, and Omotesando, before seeing Chicks on Speed in Roppongi/Nishi Azabu. I later caught up on shopping in Ueno, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, and Akihabara. I finished up with a day cruising around Odaiba and finally saw some Robots, such as Aibo playing soccer.
