I like to call that 'textured wood' and not dust.

I love my Shiriki Bobble-head. So glad I bought one. I can just imagine Shiriki taking over the world thanks to TPR enjoying Japan so much and telling everyone to go!

I'm feeling sad that this fantastic set of reports is over, too. There were so many great details in your photos of TDS that I missed entirely... Amazing. Thanks!

(And when do we go back?!?!)

As always, great TR, Chuck!

I wish I'd seen the Shiriki last fall when I was there! I'd have totally bought it. My main souvenir buying (besides t0shirts) on my Asia trip was small plushies that I could put on an X-mas tree. They were small and more importantly, LIGHT, which was important with the airlines' tight weight restrictions! But I ended up finding so many of them that I now have too many for my small tree! (And I live in a small apartment, so I don't have room for a bigger tree!)

For those who can't get enough of Japan, and in particular Tokyo Disney's two parks, they'll be the last stop on my Asia Photo TR, when I finally get to that point in a few months. I planned my trip to end up on a high note. As a bonus, I was there (and Universal, too!) during their Halloween celebration, so I got lots of pictures of their Halloween theming.
Check out my Photo Trip Report from my Epic Asia Trip! Tons of coasters and a good helping of culture too! The first legs in Japan and Korea are done, and now we're up to the TPR China trip!

^^A little plush Shiriki will be hanging from my tree.

Thanks for reading, everyone. It's always nice to know that people over than me enjoy my brand of nonsense. ;)

Stick with TPR, and you eventually can!
I've visited Japan 3 times now, with Robb
and Elissa. Can't get better than that.
