Have you heard of "Silver Week"?
Me? Golden Week"...yes. "Silver Week"...no.
Apparently the last one was in 2009 and it is when holidays and the weekend line up making 5 days off.
If you want to read more about it, I found a detailed explanation here.
I tried to get Satoshi to take me somewhere international, but we're off to somewhere domestic.
I don't have any posts lined up so it'll be quiet here for awhile.
Hopefully the weather will be cooperative and there won't be too many krazy tourists...talk to you soon!
