    PASSING THE STONE, oh dude sorry! NEVER get sick in Japan, and want a painkiller or anything, it doesnt work here, did they give you IV ibuprofin ?? morons!!! torture !! I spent three hours screaming in ultimate pain when I broke my ankle last year, these morons just looked at me like I was crazy, most people here die in the ambulance waiting for actual medical attention, or, like to find a hospital, morons !!!! theres a nice free clinic across from the McDonalds lower south exit from your hotel, if you have a sex disease, thats about it.....this is the best airport courier service, you gotta get it together a day before airport time: go downstairs to the counter and ask, they speak English, Yamoto

    Yup, hit 3 stores today. I'm working on the battle plan for Wed and Thurs as my flight is Friday so I gotta use the remaining time wisely.

    Asked at the desk and it turns out I can have my suitcases delivered to the airport by courier for a few thousand yen, I've already forgotten how much, but it was more than reasonable. I'll be doing that for sure.

    Tell me about it bro. The doctor gave me a couple of injections in my hip and sent me on my way with some Voltaren SR which is a high dose anti-inflammatory, and an anti-spasmodic drug to keep my internal stuff from spasming, which is what he said causes most of the pain.

    Thanks for the tip about Yamoto.

    theres also a huge store in Nishi-Ogikubo on the Chuo-sen about 4 stops west of Shinjuko, everytime I went there it was closed,
    north-west of the staion, across from the 7-11 on the main street, cool town...only ever managed to meet a faded porn star while
    I was waiting for this perpetually closed place to open...

    Wumpah, are you actually reading the posts? I've already asked you once to explain how to attach pictures here, you've never replied.

    I'll try to help you.
    Upload you pictures to a hosting site (imgur.com works just fine), then copy the image url, to add the image to your post click the mountain/sun icon over the blank text box near the smile icon then paste the image url.
    You're done!

    Some of the tour programs I bought at one of the disc unions, most of these were two to ¥300, except for the Genesis Lamb lies down on Broadway to her program which was ¥2000. Worth five times that easily

    Those were just the haul from one day last week, all the rest of my images are just single images of each record, I have close to 800 of them, not going to upload them as too time consuming

    Guys, how do I get to tachikawa, omiya, kitaurawa, and Chiba from Shinjuku? Do I need a different pass instead of my Paismo card? How long would it take to get to those different stations, I'm thinking I can try to pack those all in to Thursday to finish up all the disc unions and remote shops before I leave on Friday.

    I used my Pasmo to reach Tachikawa no problem.
    It's a 30 min ride if you catch an express train from Shinjuku station. Google tells me it's a 470 yen ride so a little over 900 yen for the round trip.
    Never been to the Omiya, Kitaurawa, and Chiba stores but I think you can use the Pasmo.

    If you could only go to 2 of these stations which would be the best bets?

    I'do go all the way west to Tachikawa then south to Machida.
    But again I never visited the other shops. I wouldn't really try Chiba since it's over 1 hour ride and 1600 yen round trip.
    The Omiya and Kitaurawa shops seem to be on the same JR Line so they could be feasible.
