Tokyo Game Show 2011

Went to the Tokyo Game Show today in Chiba.  Waste of time and money.  Not sure why I was motivated to go, I don’t really play video games, but thought it was something to do on a Sunday.  But it was hot and humid, over 90 degrees today, and two hours away and too crowded – couldn’t get close to anything.  We stayed for about an hour before we called it quits.  Oh well, lessons learned.

Started our journey today from Yokohama Station.

The complicated Tokyo rail system. Very easy to get lost.

Tokyo Sky Tree (second tallest structure in the world) in the background, to be finished in February 2012. Shot from the moving train.

They were minting money at this expo.

Some of the stages were pretty impressive.

Probably the most interesting thing I saw was a demonstration of the XBOX Kinect.

Just too may people, takes a lot away from enjoying the experience.

Shot this photo from the bus ride on the way home.

Hoping to get a decent Mt Fuji sunset shot tonight, but too cloudy. You can see the top of Mt Fuji in the distance.

About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
