Switzerland Invades Liechtenstein!

...And promptly uninvades. Oops.

Well, I only just found out today due to a post on Journalfen:

WorldCon is coming to Japan!

Specifically, Yokohama. And, assuming I don't quit my job(!), I'm going to try to go. I haven't been to a Western-style con for ages. At least, I assume this is one of the ones where you stay-up-all-night-talking-about-Very-Important-Things-and-SF.

I wish I understood the pricing structure though...! Seems pretty expensive, but I still want to go.

It has an (unofficial) LJ, of course: nippon2007

The concert is tomorrow and I'm terrified.

Oh yeah, trying to get Tenimyu tickets too. But mainly concert.

Myself and ljquin will be there!

Worldcon does look expensive at the first glance, but it's worth remembering that it is a week-long (5 day) convention. Unfortunately it's getting pretty close to the con now, so registration is going to be more expensive than it would be otherwise.

It's looking like it's going to be a lot of fun, and it's the first time that it has been held in Asia so it's pretty exciting.

Re: Worldcon
Although I will only be able to make it for two of those five days. Still... a traditional Western con does appeal. I'm going to have to look into it. I wish I'd known sooner!
