A lot of people seem to be traveling within Japan, to Osaka and Tokyo, etc., to spend time with friends. A lot of other people seem to be headed to South Korea, the "new Thailand" for those who don't like being caught up in civil unrest in a foreign country.
If I had magical golden tickets to go anywhere this week, I'd want to go home for a quick visit, and then maybe fly off to Australia or New Zealand, where I would just miraculously bump into a former professor of mine and hear about a fabulous scholarship at a grad school down there.
However, I'm saving up for a car-- albeit a used one, since there's no knowing how long I'll be here and I don't want to sink too much money into it-- and so I've decided to stay home this Golden Week.
Still there's plenty to read, and if the fair weather continues, ample opportunity for long walks.
