Me too! They're stuck in my iPhone as I managed to leave the connector cable at the last hotel! At Narita awaiting my flight back so will retrieve them on my return home.

A couple of days of work in Tokyo:



Albeit with some typical Japanese hospitality and food:



And work assignment complete, I can venture out to explore a bit of Tokyo:









Then it's off to Japan Bike Rentals to pick up an F650GS:

Damn shame the mountain was being shy.
Looks like you got some good riding and eating in though.
