Yes, again!!! If you were wondering why I was conspicuously absent from International Wota’s Cake Day Festivities, Thursday (or is it Friday?) I spent a harrowing god knows how many hours making the journey from my humble San Francisco Bay Area apartment to the place known as “Awesome Island”. That’s right, I am back in Tokyo for another vacation full of idol fun! Unfortunately my first evening was blown by a 2 hour delay for my flight, plus extra heavy traffic from Narita Airport to my hotel. But I finally checked into my hotel at 7:30 pm. But what is in store for this trip???
The first weekend is going to be extra hectic…
Morning Musume Spring Tour. I don’t have a ticket yet, but I plan on heading out to score one tomorrow morning for the Sunday Matinee. Actually, there are a few H!P related shows while I am in town…Melon Kinenbi, H!P Eggs, and I believe Manoeri. But I haven’t decided whether or not to see any of them too as many of these events conflict with one another. We will see…
AKB48 2-shot Handshake Event at Tokyo Big Sight. This is going to be awesome. I am finally going to get that 2-shot with Ohori Megumi that I missed out on last year. I actually have tickets to take pictures with 4 girls, and I am working on more.
AKB48 Live at Yokohama Arena. Since AKB48 is getting so popular these days I figured I would plan my trip around one of their big shows. This way I was assured of getting a ticket instead of hoping for the lottery. This is the biggest venue AKB has performed at in their history, so I am sure all three shows will be super-special.
AKB48 Theater. Everyone says I have great AKB lottery luck. So far I have won a ticket for the only two shows I have applied for, and they are both tomorrow (Saturday) I am seeing Team Kenkyuusei in the afternoon, and SDN48 at night! I have an email in for SDN48 on Sunday night as well. I hope I win!
So that sums up the first half of my trip. I also have a ticket to an SKE48 handshake event, but I may not have time to get there…
The last 6 days have nothing definite, but I have a few possible events in the works. I don’t want to jinx it, as I haven’t figured out how to score tickets yet. But I just found out about a concert happening next weekend in Tokyo. Who are the performers???
Anyhow, I would add media to this post, except I am totally jetlagged. But please look forward to my reports, if for no other reason than to see if I survive this hectic weekend. And I promise loots of pics!!!
