The Japan 30-day meme.. START!  
Like it says! Let's get the Japan 30-day meme rolling!! =^-^= Some of my friends have gotten the jump on me and already started.. I was thinking that I'd link them too because it's interesting, but I don't know if you guys want them linked here.. So if you are and do, let me know! I'll include a link list starting from the next post! ^^

Day 01 - A picture of you "in Japan". (doing or wearing something "Japanese")
I was looking around on my hard drive for recent pictures of me doing something Japanese when I came across these.. I mean, if I don't have pictures of me doing anything traditional-like (yukata, festivals, etc), I do definitely have a picture of me in Akihabara!

What is more Japanese than anime, after all? (Not necessarily applicable these days since anime is all over the world, but still!)

These are from earlier this summer slumming it around in Akihabara, btw. The picture of me with Evangelion headphones I've posted before, I think, but I don't think the buddy-buddy Ayanami Rei one was in there *^^* I'll work at getting some more traditional pictures taken!

And the rest of the meme...

Day 01 - A picture of you "in Japan". (doing or wearing something "Japanese")
Day 02 - Describe your neighborhood in Japan.
Day 03 - Most interesting person you met.
