My round-the-world ticket allowed me to stop off in any country where I had to make a connection. The first stop was Japan and I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend looking out over a landscape filled with Mt. Fuji.
A case of mistaken identity, a girl who dressed like a cat, and some real Live Action Role Playing made my visit something much different than I expected. The first wonder of the world may have handed me her leash, but she was definitely in control!
