You were in a capsule hotel! :goldlaugh: I've always wanted to be in one!

It's pretty interesting.  There was a grid of capsules on the wall, about 7 long-ways by 2 high.  There is a privacy shade as you see in the picture.  You get a locker just outside the capsule to put your stuff in, and you leave your big bags downstairs in the business lounge.  It was great for the price (only around $40).  You do get to hear everyone's alarms in the morning, but for me I don't mind that at all.  Oh, and the showers are public. :D

Very interesting Mylo.. I am a bit surpised they would build a tall
structure like the Sky Tree in such a earthquake prone area.. But I am
sure the designers have built many safeguards into it.

Perhaps you can get a view shot from the top of it. :orbunny:

When we went to Tokyo Sky Tree, the weather was not that good, so we didn't go to the top.  Now, I'm in Kyoto, so unfortunately that top shot has eluded me.  (:

Technology is very integrated here, but it's much easier to do than in America because of how relatively close in proximity everyone is to each other.  With that being said, America can still do a lot of things regarding technology integration, as I've seen in Japan

You really should if you get the chance.  :)  The capsules aren't that small, and...I don't really like public showers as well, but it was just one night.

Ok on the clouds and the Sky Tree.   When you have a place that high
the weather is going to affect tourist views. 

Just courious, have you had a chance to ride one of the Bullet trains?  I
imagine it would be something to see, and or ride. :orbunny:

Yes the open spaces here in the U.S. does make technology more expensive
and time consuming to implement. Also Japan after the war had to rebuild. This
gave them the option to build a more modern infrastructure  Same thing with
China and other modernizing countries now days.

Not yet, but I'm going to take one back to Tokyo on August 9th.  People say it's quite the experience.  :)

Ok on taking the train next month.. I look forward to hearing
about it. :orbunny:

My that Kyoto station looks huge even in a picture.

I have often wondered if modern Japan is much lilke one large
suburbia outside the cities. Not one continuous village, but where
one can see man made structures virtually everywhere.  
The pictures show some nice country scenes though.  

I can remember 50 years ago in the area where I live one could
travel miles and not see a house or building. Now traveling along
those same roads it's hard to find a spot where you can't see a
house or barn.

The Japanese countryside free from suburbia still exists.  :)  It's just not too apparent when it's dwarfed by the fame of Tokyo and all the great cities in Japan.  In fact, next weekend, I will be going to the country to a very very small village to do some work.  I'll have to let you know how that goes later.

I am glad to hear they do still have land that is free of
structures..  

It will be interesting to see what you have to say about the small
villages.

Some years ago I read that in the very small villages, people may
serve themselves in small shops and leave the money. Even though
the owner might be out.

I understand it's part of the family honor they hold close.  Theft or any
dishoner would bring shame to the family.

As someone who is surrounded by miles upon miles of said farmland, it's hard for me to think of anything *but* farmland when I think of Illinois.

Same.  I drove through Illinois with my family...not very city-like.  Then again, it was southern Illinois.

So after about two months, my Japan trip is finally coming to a close.  This Saturday I will be making the long trip home to America.  It has been a really amazing time this summer (aside from being on totally different time zones with America :D), and someday in the future, I'd really like to return to this country.  Japan was everything I thought it was going to be and more.

But hey?  I've still got a week left. :)

It gives one a new prospective on life when you can visit other
countries and experience their culture.

When you come back you will be wanting to sleep all day.  :D

Now for the 24 hour plus trip home. :)

Also, Shinkansen's are amazing. It's like an airplane...on the ground. I got to Tokyo from Kyoto in 2 hours and 20 minutes, while on an overnight bus it took about 7 hours. Then again, the N700 series Shinkansen was probably going faster than 140 mph, and I think it has a top speed around 170 mph.

I took some video, so maybe I'll post it when I get home.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to once again being on the same time zone as you all! :D
