Had my last night in Tokyo. Went drinking and did karaoke with Conrad. I joined him in butchering Bocelli’s masterpiece Con te Partiro. I spent my final hours in Japan drinking Fosters in the Qantas lounge.

Went to visit my friend Yoko on her island, Kozushima. It’s part of Tokyo but lies 3 hours offshore by jet boat or 25 minutes by plane. I almost got stuck out there when the typhoon came but managed to get myself on the only flight off the island that day.

Had a nice afternoon at Thrash Zone, a craft beer bar in Yokohama.

Went to the Iwachu cast iron factory in Morioka. They have the biggest cast iron kettle in the world and a massive nabe pot (not the biggest in the world)
