    S. My phone was left on my seat at the end of an opera performance in an upmarket cinema, and handed in to their lost property office by the staff as I really expected, so much so that I just called in at the cinema on my way back home.

    See you again sometime.

    Looked like we would queue forever but actually got in pretty quick. Loads to see and easy to get seperated. Thanks for watching out for me guys.
    Will post a few pics here. But many many more going to be on my Flickr page - http://www.flickr.com/photos/96120062@N04/sets/72157634806274259/

    Nice to meet you too Donald and huge. It's was a nice event. Excellent concept but disappointing exucution, hyper japan organisers could have created a theme. Loved the Real geishas though, I've seen their documentary so was really happy to meet the actual real geishas in person. Loved it. Food was rediculosly expensive, especially £5 for five small pieces of popcorn chicken! Would have bought loads of stuff had it not been over £40 for most items.

    A lot of variety. Food a bit confusing and not cheap.

    The address is given as - Earls Court Two, Earls Court, London SW5 9TA but I wouldn't rely on using a post code for Sat Nav.

    As you look North from the Old Brompton Road - Earls Court 2 is the left hand building looking like an aircraft hanger, (vs the right hand one looking like an old cinema).

    Let's meet outside the Lilly Langtree Pub 19 Lillie Rd, London, Greater London SW6 1UE, which is opposite the exhibition halls. Turn left as you come out of West Brompton Tube.

    I'll try to be there from 1.30 and will embarass myself by wearing my Yukata as in the photo.

    Anyone got a TopKnot wig?

    Hi I want to come too but the link wants you to accept cookies which I did then it went to a filter page?

      Hmm, tricky to sort technical issues like that remotely when I'm no expert. If you like I can order an extra ticket for you, (though I wouldn't normally advise folk to do that), or you could pay on the door (but that might mean queuing). With fees it came to £9.65 - still better than £15. Let me know

    I have bought a ticket. Where can I meet you?
    Also where exactly is Earls Court 2 - I take it that it is not part of the old Earls Court exhibition complex just by Earls Court tube station

      I'll give you my mobile by private message and post more info on suitable places to meet. I believe it is part of the exhibition area you know and love. Just Hall 2. Bear with me while I check. Cheers

    Guys, this is going to be a blast.
    I fully understanc Friday pm is the ultimate in bad timing. But would encourage you all to get along at somepoint over the weekend.
    The Japanese see the world from such a different angle you'll be laughing your head off if you can handle the culture shock

    悪気は意図していません。私はあなたたちを愛しています。
