Went to Akiba and roamed around Yodobashi Camera for the afternoon
Took the Tsukuba Express from Akiba to Tsukuba, at 1600, cost 1190 yen. Arrived around 1700, walked through the big long gardens, past Tsukuba Expo Center, then a loooong way to Kashima Shrine.
Got dark while I was in Tsukuba, took the train back to Akiba in the dark, then continued on to Makuhari Messe to meet with Trej and the others.
Had dinner around 21:30 at a bbq place, 焼肉屋くいどん in the Messe Amuse Center.
