Those closures are OK by me.
Yeah, I thought I might try to venture away and see some of the historic shrines/museums. The other stuff, I don't see what I'd be interested in except maybe oogling an out-of-this-world cell phone or laptop somewhere, which seems like a waste of time.
Japanese pop culture as a whole is not up my alley. Not a big video game fan, not interested in watching much TV even though I'm aware some people love the bizarre game shows, and I don't get worked up over music bands of 17 year old girls or 28 year old men who dress more feminine than the girls.
