In about 5 hours I hop on a flight from San Jose to Japan. I'm visiting Yahoo! Japan for a few days. I'll arrive Friday evening and am participating in a Search Symposium that Y! Japan is hosting on Saturday. I'll give two brief presentations about Search and be there to answer questions.
I think I'm on my own Sunday, so if the weather cooperates I'll probably get a one day subway pass and roam the city a bit. Tokyo happens to be quite friendly to non-Japanese speaking visitors--well, at least those who can read or speak English. There are lots of dual language signs. Maybe I'll find the Japanese version of my book in a bookstore. :-)
Monday I'm in the Y! Japan office for most of the day before I catch my 6pm flight back home. Amusingly, I'll arrive home before I left. Aren't time zones funny?
I'll try to post some pictures while I'm gone. If I'm lucky my sleep schedule won't be too screwed up.
