Part five in an ongoing series, “Kabukichou from above”. [2002](/, [2003](/, [2005](/?1107), [2006](/?1150). I went to Tokyo in January to pick up Piroko and bring her back to the USA once and for all. I do believe that this marks the first day that I took a photo for this journal, posted to my [Vox blog](, *and* recorded the day’s accomplishments in my [bouquet]( This day was my traditional one geeky day on the town that the lady allows me whenever I visit Tokyo. What used to be my routine, wandering Shinjuku and browsing the used game and CD stores, is now a rare ritual. Thanks to the internet, though, I feel more connected to the geeky Akihabara and Shinjuku culture than ever.
