Welcome to Notes from the Henna Gaijin. "Henna Gaijin" means roughly "weird foreigner", which aptly applies to people like myself. If you want to know more about who I am and how I am involved with the Macintosh community, look here.
I am going to try to add some notes here regularly at Japanware.com. I will be sharing my "weird" views of Japan, Tokyo and the show which I hope you can put to use in a practical way.
The cost of going to MacWorld Expo Tokyo isnit that much greater than going to MacWorld in San Francisco. In fact, although my plane ticket is a bit more expensive flying to San Francisco than from our nearest airport to Narita International Airport, all other costs are lower than attending Macworld San Francisco -- even the cost of the hotel and dining.
I am going to start out the Notes with some tips on selecting the best place to stay by cost, quality and easy access to the expo.
You can read the rest of this article, and the rest in the series as they get posted, at the Japanware Web site.
