    I would love to go but a 12 hours flight scares me also. I can max out at about 4-5 hours on a flight and than I freak out...

    Well that's to the east coast. It's less than 11 hours out of San Fran!

    The flight was brutal. I tried, but just could not get to sleep on the way over.



    About as effective as warm milk...

    I think these might have helped though. You lay down a couple of strips when it's time to go to bed. They're 'all natural' and are supposed to reset the circadian rhythms...



    It was my first time dealing with a severe time change, and i'm not sure if they helped, but I did manage to get to sleep fairly easily every night. And after a cold shower I was ready for duty every morning.

    I wish I had taken a picture, but every hotel bathroom has one of Ray's fancy electronic toilets!

    yea, the toliets are 4TW there....ooooh warm water and a massage

    I arrived there fine but was hella tired at like 10pm or so. Woke up the next day fine at 7am in Japan at my room.

    12hr flight from SF was not bad. But the return flight was. Hard to sleep at the right times and then you woken up at like 3am to fill out the damn card...

    Btw, I flew there on my dime for a week's stay. Not cheap

    Good to hear your story.

    Ouch, hope you had a good trip. Did you do a cross country tour, or just stay in Tokyo?

    Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

    I only stayed in Tokyo. I spent $3k in one week including flight and I didn't even pitch in much for the van we rented.

    Now time to find those pics...

    Tokyo is great! I have spent way too much time at Narita! Love the admirals club there though.
    I left my camera (DSLR) in the hotel with me everyday I was there so I didn't get many pics outside the hotel.





    Love the toilets.
