On Saturday, I'll board a 777 at San Jose Airport bound for Japan (11 hours, 20 minutes). I'll be in Japan for about a week, mostly visiting Yahoo! Japan. I'll be at the Grand Hayatt Tokyo Hotel in Roppongi. The Y! Japan office is in Roppongi Hills (as is the hotel). Drop by the hotel if you're bored. :-)
I hope to have a bit of down time to check out some local stuff. Any recommendations? Can I bring anyone back some cool electronic toys? (Err, don't answer that.) After Japan, we head to Taipei, Taiwan for about 2 days and then to Seoul, South Korea for a day. We have offices there too. Finally, we'll fly back to the Bay Area, landing in San Francisco.
Yeay! I get to be an international man of... err, ... uhm... hm.
I visited Japan in 1999 but have never been to either Korea or Taiwan. This should be an interesting trip. I'll take pictures. And maybe blog while gone. I'll have some net access, but who knows how much or what I'll do with it.
Thursday is "assemble MySQL presentations for Japan, clean my apartment, and get everything ready" day so that I can use Friday to finish what I don't get done today.
Update: Aww, crap. I'm gonna miss the California International Air Show in Salinas this weekend. Damned Murphy. I'm also missing the chance to meet with some interesting people who will be in town... Murphy sucks.
Update #2: Kick Ass! They've got 802.11 WiFi. :-)
