    Hi everyone, sorry I`m having great difficulty accessing the internet so I have only just checked now! Thanks for the kind messages (PS the food is gooood!).

    Gernot I have moved up the country and will be on Sado Island in the next few days for a while, then returning to Tokyo some time after that - are you in Tokyo again?

    Evanism - a little disappointing, the Lilliput is actually a TTT repro (unless the original is on holiday - in the US perhaps?). I got very excited for moment until I discovered that!

    Hope this is OK. Sorry, I'm rushing because I'm sure I'm about to get kicked off this computer... bye for now from Japan!!!! :D

    As I write this I am in Kyoto – I read Gernot’s post too late and missed out on Osaka (doh! Just down the track!) – we went to a flea market the other day, but there wasn’t much there – just a blue horikawa, TV robot in OK condition and a couple of rockets – but they were all way overpriced. There was one interesting rocket that apparently is very rare. Taiwanese I think (or Nth Korean – I forget, sorry I’m not much good with rockets!). The seller said he had a shop in Osaka with many different robots, but he hadn’t brought any of them down with him. Anyway, I took a couple of pics in case anyone was interested. It was in mint condition.

    There’s also apparently a shop with many robots just under the train station in Kobe called Motomachi City (? – the guy who told me didn’t speak very clear English) but I’m not sure if I’ll make it there before I leave.

    Anyway, I’m having a great time here – loving the food and loving all the friendly Japanese people. They really are as lovely as everyone says they are!

    Thanks for the thoughts Steve... I'm glad you're enjoying the pics (I'm sure people with slow internet connections are cursing me now!)

    Two days later I also visited Guy Antique in Tokyo which was also fantastic… Moktar was away but I had the immense pleasure of meeting Sumihiro who was very kind and spoke at length to me (albeit in broken English!).

    here is a little glimpse of what I saw...
