So last year I ended up farting around for Golden Week for some reason. I think I went out a couple nights, and made a half-assed trip to Ueno zoo because it was free on children’s day. I went to see the pandas, but I didn’t get to see the pandas because the wait was something ridiculous like four hours. So I had to make due with the other, less pandarific animals like monkeys and tigers and that, the ones I coulda seen in a box of animal crackers
This year I refuse to be so lame. I’ve planned and booked a stupendous Golden Week Extravaganza to Hiroshima and Kyoto — two of the places I’ve really wanted to go since moving here. I’ll finally get to knock number two off my list of the 7 things I wanted to do in Japan.
And from Hiroshima I plan to go to Miyajjima, and see the big red floating Torii.
And I want to do a whole bunch of other stuff too, but I don’t know what yet. Any suggestions???
