I'm out in Japan at the end of October this year - the week of October 28th 2013 for a scientific conference (the CBI Annual Conference). Japan is one of my favorite places in the whole world, and I have a routine of...
- browsing vintage hi-fi shops
- hunting out high-end capacitor and choke components,
- eating eel うなぎ bento,
- visiting CD stores (at least the format lives on in Japan, and the Obi Strips and enhanced content makes compelling browsing for an obsessive completist like me)
- going to Bic Camera 株式会社ビックカメラ
- visiting Akihabara 秋葉原.
My schedule is currently empty for Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st. I'd be delighted to visit and give a seminar, or maybe run a workshop on ChEMBL, so if you are interested in meeting up, or a visit, or an evening meal, let me know.
