In Sendai now, and feeling much better. Thanks to everyone who sent well-wishes last night. The group of Italian girls at the capsule hotel gave me some medicine, which almost made me take back all the bad things I had thought about them.

Sky Tree is not as impressive as it should be, actually. That's because the framework is so massive that it looks like it's much closer than it is. It's not until you get really close that you realize, oh, that steel beam that I thought was two feet across is actually six feet across. It's hard to believe that it's already much taller than Tokyo Tower, and it's only 2/3 finished.

Sendai seems like a nice place. The local specialty here is beef tongue, but after seeing a picture of how it's served, I decided my stomach wasn't up to it. The train ride here was lovely once we left Tokyo's urban sprawl. I took a little detour into Gunma-ken, just so I can mark it off my list of prefectures. That means this trip will take care of all of Kanto and Tohoku.

Must shower before bed, bleh. Want to sleep.
