For my fourtieth birthday I went to Japan again, this time with my brother. We went to Kyoto, Nara, Yudanaka (in the mountains to see the snow monkeys and onsen) and Tokyo. It was great. I bought a bag of manga too so I'll mention them on here once I read them. I've drawn a sketchbook so I'll try and get that out in time for Sheffield Zine Fest in two weeks. It'll be a little phoocopied thing.
Inari Shrine, Kyoto
Deer at Nara
Snow monkeys! They swim in a hot spring.
Hokusai Museum in Obuse. There was a lot of snow up in the mountains.
Akihabara Electric Town where I found a really cheap manga shop, Books Off. 100 yen manga books!
