Very interesting trip and nice pictures. Taxi also seems to be the best option you had at the beginning!

[...] @huima For booking my travel to Finland and the UK in November, I’ve been testing out a local travel agent, and comparing to online alternatives, i.e. direct on the Internet, and online sites e.g. Expedia.  There are some fees for booking with an agent, and I now see 24-hour telephone support for Internet providers.  I see the value of third party booking of flights with 24 hour support, having been delayed for an extra 8 days in Europe with the 2010 volcanic ash cloud incident.

@Pierreo , it's not you. It seems that the Wordpress visual editor has a glitch on the most recent upgrade. I've fixed it manually, and will watch out for this problem on the next post.

OK, what am I doing wrong. When I look at the complete post, O do not get any photos... It's an area of Tokyo where I have not been, so I was interested in photos even if rags (sorry, textiles) is not my stuff...

I was there, almost to the day, 25 years earlier after we had celebrated New Year with Craig. I think you had already left to go to Vancouver. Things probably have not changed much - however, I do not remember much of that visit other than the particle accelerator which, at the time, was one of the most powerful in the world.

AH! The pleasures of travel... I have done that routine a few times - the last time I did it, I had 5 minutes to catch the Narita Express at Tokyo Station after the arrival of my subway. I fortunately knew the way to go (not always obvious) and therefore made the train with 2 minutes to spare!
