I'm PecanOwl over there.
As for the Japan trip, I forgot to mention that one of our primary reasons for going is to EAT ALL THE THINGS. We've been watching the Mind of a Chef series on Netflix, and David Chang keeps circling back to Japan, most especially Japan's regional specialty ramen shops, and Toby realized that he wanted to try all of it. So one of our goals is to make a list of foods to eat in Japan and try to get as much as possible. :D
