Japan! SF!

Worldcon is in Japan this year!
I am planning on going and emilytheslayer will likely be going with me. It is on August 30th - September 3rd, 2007
in
Yokohama, Japan

I want to go partly because I've gone to the last 3 WorldCons and intend to go to more after this one, partly because I love Japan. As a special bonus, this is the very first WorldCon ever to be held in all of Asia! And you know how the Japanese love their Cosplay, so the atmosphere should be greatly amusing anyway.

I would LOVE for other people to come along as well. Here's travel info and Here's one of the travel packages that I'm considering.

I'm thinking that I might go early or return late and use the time to visit emmalyon and joncwriter in SF if we do the package tour since it departs from SF. If we don't do the package tour, we'll likely take as direct a flight as we can on JAL. Mitsuwa in NJ has a travel agency with really good deals.

So, does anyone else want to go?
