  1. True.Or you could just walk in with your head up your arse and asume you are some sudo pompous wanker like Bono. That works as well.

    Sudo pompous? I think you'll find the spelling is "pseudo" buddy.

    Actually if he did asume[sic] he was some "sudo pompous wanker" that would mean he just believed he was faking being a pompous wanker and in fact not one at all.

    Either way what you wrote makes no sense, has no relevance to this thread and like all your posts on the forum so far a reply to one of mine.

    Didn't I call you the next day like I promised or something or are you Ratpack (psycho Nick) in disguise?

    Why the personal attack? I am here to read the posts and participate in the forum like any other respectable member. My views weren't directed at you. However you seemed to take offence and then assert some kind of unintelligible rant about a spelling mistake, a Ratpack and some guy Nick?


  2. You could always put on a suit, stick any kind of laminate badge around your neck and walk in with confidence. Works just about anywhere in the world. :-)

  3. Taxi to Ryogoku from Tokyo will be about 3,000-3,500 at most. They are metered and there is no chance of being ripped off or taken the "long way".

    You know if it's a weekend you arrive I could meet you if you are stuck.

    Also don't forget the dohyo matsuri in the Kokugikan at 10am the day before the tournament. It's free and you will get to see both Yokozuna up close.

    That sounds about right.


  4. You say that they are metered. Does that mean if you get stuck in traffic, you pay more for the extra time?

    When stopped in traffic the meter runs at a much reduced rate. Heavy traffic makes little difference to the fare.

    How about language barrier? Will they understand me if I say "Kokugikan" or "Ryogoku Pearl"?

    "Ryogoku Kokugikan" is what you should say. The hotel is across the road. Most won't know it by name. Almost all taxis use GPS now anyway so the route is usually the fastest.

    And I assume I can easily find a taxi at any major train station

    Find a taxi in Tokyo? Anywhere, anytime you'll have at least 5 within sight. (In a state of confusion...)

    Yeah.Taxis are easy to find in Tokyo.Be prepared to pay through the nose!
