All We Hear Is Radio Kaikan : Tokyo Toy Hunt part 3

After spending the first 3 days hitting up my major toy destinations, I took a break from the toy shopping to focus more on the other cool stuff Tokyo had to offer, such as the fantastic food and sites and attractions and of course quality family time. Of course before the trip ended I managed to sneak in a few more toy hunts here and there as well as one more major trip back to Akihabara.

Tip of the Iceberg : Tokyo Toy Hunt part 2

On my first trip to Tokyo I was pretty much overwhelmed with what I saw and experienced. I was a wide eyed newbie not quite sure how to go about my toy hunt in this wonderful new land! This time around I felt more like a seasoned shopper. I had my wishlist laid out and more importantly, I had a better idea of where to go and what places not to bother with. This time, things would be different.

Stay On Target : Tokyo Toy Hunt part 1

My wife’s family loves to travel. Every year they have their favorite destinations that they like to visit, and for the past few years, Japan has been their regular November getaway. After a couple of missed opportunities, my wife and I were finally able to join them last year. It was my first real visit to Japan (not counting a short stopover many many many years ago) and was amazing! So amazing that I knew that we would have to come back one day.
