Off to Tokyo this week

I will be leaving for a trip to Tokyo with my family tonight, arriving in Haneda Airport on Monday morning. Coincidently my last year's trip took place about the same date too. In short, I will be in Japan from 14th to 20th June.
While me and my family will be revisiting a lot of places we have already been in previous trips, there will be a couple of places that we would like to go to that we haven't really been to yet, such as Odaiba and Imperial Palace. I know some people ask "Why go to the same place again and again?", and well I guess it's a matter of personal preference really. Sure there are many other places one can go to, but revisitng the same place has its own charm; if one enjoys the place s/he has been to and would like to go back then it doesn't hurt to do so again, and moreso you'll become more familiar with the place you have been to.

As for shopping, don't expect too much from me compared to many fellow bloggers who have been to Japan. Since I can get a lot of stuff fairly easily and in a good price in Hong Kong already, there is no real need for me to have to go to places like Akihabara specifically to buy them, BUT there are quite a number of shops that do re-selling discontnued items, event exclusive items, or just simply hard-to-get items. Basically it's like treasure hunting for me in some ways, but pickier I suppose.
Gosh I am pretty behind on blogs and comments these days with all the real life stuff and trip preparations etc. @_@;; Anyway I will be back on Sunday night, and I'll try to catch up with you guys when I come back!
