Episode 20 – Happy New Year

Happy new year from Tokyo!

On this episode of the show :

  • An awkward flight to Tokyo
  • A change of scenery from Narita airport to western Tokyo – taking the bus.
  • In Japan, New Year’s celebrations dwarf the travel season surrounding Christmas in Canada.  It is mayhem.
  • Celebrating the new year Japanese-style, visiting a shrine and hearing the Emperor’s greeting.  Check out my video on Facebook!



  • A new SIM card to try out from Freetel

Also : I promised I’d mention the pizza place I found in Shibuya, but forgot to by the end of the podcast.  Spontini is the place… and, while it’s expensive, it’s delicious!
