Tokyo. Train System. Rush Hour. Wow.

the museum exhibit was excellent, though pictures were not allowed. the reason for this was the spiffy limited edition artbook. i wanted it, but wanted neither to spend the money on it or to carry it home. i got some clearfiles and postcards instead.

now i stand inside the sapporo tv tower. if it isn't the tallest building in town, it can only be eclipsed by like two buildings. i wanted to come up here during the snow festival, but didn't have the money at the time. now, i wish it were a sunny day. even with clouds and rain that can't decide if it wants to fall or not, the view is great. it really underlines the fact that the japanese all seem to have black, silver, or white cars, though.

generating futures

the thing i have planned for today is a visit to a particular art exhibit. details on the nature of the exhibit will come later when i wrap up the blog because i want to try to take pictures of it for a friend. for now, let us just say that i got here with a decent amount of ease, but am here an hour and a half before the exhibit opens. oops.

bus noriba

i sit at the kushiro moo building, still unsure what its name means or what its primary purpose is. the night bus to sapporo leaves from here, though, and it is that bus which i await. this is my last blog post from kushiro. i am about to set out on the first trip i have completely planned on my own (and successfully executed, rather) on my own in japan. i have one thing planned for sapporo tomorrow; it won't take all day, so i am gonna have to find something else to do with the rest of it. that doesn't bother me at all.

oh boy

the train station i got off at does not have a machine for purchasing tickets. it does, however, have a schedule for return to kushiro eki. if i fail to find mariko i still win exploration.
