    I pretty much avoided meat entirely when I was over there a few weeks back. Couldnít face it after all those articles about their food standards.

    Just finished booking the last of my main hotels for the Olympics in Tokyo 2020. Been easily the most stressful travel planning experience I've ever had, but I'm glad it's done. Should be a real trip of a lifetime.

    Iím finding it really hard to narrow down what to do. So much stuff to see, try and do. Got half of it planned out, just nailing down the second half now.

    Few parts as needless to say, booking anywhere was tricky unless you wanted to pay £2k a night.

    Chūō City and Toshima City, near Disney (whatever that is called) and Chiba.

    Oh, and probably a day trip to Kyoto and another to one of the national parks. Also down in Izu for the Mountain Biking.

    Was fine , I saw a guy with a metal bar in his hand squaring up to 3 other guys and had a pro China woman giving me all her propaganda and saying to ďtell my friendsĒ.

    Otherwise , business as usual.
    The bonus is hotel rooms are cheap as chips compared to their usual exorbitant prices.
    Hopefully will still be the case when Iím back in January.

    Have decided to pop to Kyoto on the day I have no events on. Definitely loving the temple vibe, and better still is how fucking fast you can get to a place that's so far away.

    Stupid UK and its third world trains.

    I probably didn't phrase that well.
    I will be happy if rooms are cheap, not that trouble continues, I very much want that to stop.
