    ArtScience Museum: HUMAN+ & The Universe and Art

I’d already bought tickets online via DMM.e for Â¥2,016 (about SGD $14) per person weeks ago. Meanwhile our accommodations weren’t even settled for the rest of the trip – yay priorities. Tokyo Big Sight is a pretty iconic-looking convention centre. It was fun exploring new anime as well as checking up on the evergreens, even though I’ve not been on the up and up in…
