Flying out in an hour for a few days in Hong Kong, then ship to Shanghai, Karatsu, Hiroshima, Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo. Cherry blossoms should be in full bloom while we’re there; have been wanting to see that for years.😎
When in Tokyo, if you would like to go to a restaurant that serves an interesting dish of shellfish in river goo, ask Julie D about it.
And take the subway to the Ginza stop. At night.
