    Tokyo: Anime Japan 2017

    Ottie and I woke to a frigid, dreary landscape as the skies steadily dispensed rain for the entire day. Having to weather both wet and cold was the perfect recipe for misery, but I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from visiting Anime Japan! I’d already bought tickets online via DMM.e for ¥2,016 (about SGD $14) per person weeks ago. Meanwhile our accommodations weren’t even settled for the rest of the trip – yay priorities.

The museum wasn’t even crowded! I think there were only ten other people besides us; quite a pity because the exhibits were so plentiful and surprisingly educational that it deserves to be more popular than it looked to be from our trip there.
