Planning is driving me crazy...

...almost as crazy as people in Osaka.

We've made a list of things to do and see in Tokyo. The list is too long to cram it all into the one week we're staying there. And that makes for interesting dillemmas. Do you go to Ginza for shopping, or do you go to Kamakura to see the sea and the Great Buddha? When is the best time to see Tokyo Bay, and can we combine that with something else? On sunday, do we go to Yoyogi Park or to Akihabara for the cosplayers? If we go to Yoyogi Park, we can also visit the Meiji Shrine... And what to do on the first day, when we're all tired from travelling? Do we go to a quiet park or to a bustling centre like Roppongi Hills? Decisions, decisions, and the risk-averse part of me wants to know. The project manager-part of me wants to optimise our time.

And we haven't even scratched the surface of what to do in Kyoto or Osaka...

The schedule for Tokyo as we have it now (note: subject to huge change without prior notice:
- Monday: Flight from Schiphol;
- Tuesday: Arrival at Narita. Go to the hotel, see Roppongi Hills in the afternoon/evening;
- Wednesday: Asakusa & Akihabara;
- Thursday: ?. This is also the first day of the 14-day period for our JR Rail Pass;
- Friday: Ghibli Museum in Mitaka;
- Saturday: Ueno.
- Sunday: Yoyogi Park, Harajuku, Meiji-shrine;
- Monday: Train to Kyoto.

Oh well. I'm sure things will work out. Or so I tell myself.
