- Tokyo: Asakusa, Harajuku, & ShibuyaOn Sunday I had planned on going to Hakone to try to see Mt. Fuji, but there was 90% chance of rain, so instead I decided to explore some other areas of Tokyo, and save Hakone for Monday.

- Osaka: Day 9I honestly didn't do much today. I walked around Ishibashi a bit, raided a Gachapon machine that is so totally old that the capsules on the inside were starting to become blackened. I left one capsule in there…how lonely.

- 遊。行。 @ 沖繩 國際通國際通，是沖繩那霸的一條商業購物街及主要遊客區。若是自駕遊的話，最好不要駕車前往，一來，國際通的停車場大多是要付費的，二來，不用走回頭路拿車。可於牧志站下車，步行到縣廳前站離開。[[ http://goo.gl/maps/BJEOF| http://goo.gl/maps/BJEOF]]
