OK, Ive got the go ahead (kinda, havent book the time off work yet...) for Akita and Aomori festivals in August. Was planning to go with a friend from the UK, but unfortunately they cant come now, so looks like Ill have to go it alone... Heard that Akita and Aomori are not too friendly towards tourists? Will a single female be OK? ...Well, Ive been to Tottenham High Road, Wood Green and numerous other places in London popular for stabbings many times. I could get run over by a bus. A huge earthquake might happen. If I always think of the what ifs? I wouldnt do anything. Just be careful and sensible & Ill be OK.
Hope hotels arent booked up already... ?!
