Japan Bucket List Update

As I am gearing up for another trip down to Tokyo, I realized I haven't updated my bucket list officially since we reached the 1 year point of living in Japan.  Well, I have now officially lived here for 2 years and 7 months!  We still have a little time left in Japan, so I am hoping it is enough time to knock most, if not all, off my list.

Impressive!  I have knocked 55 things off my bucket list for here in Japan.  Now, we are more than half way through our time here and I have just less than half my list to go.  At least I have some of these in my plans already.  Guess I better get moving...can't be slacking on these!

QUESTIONS:  What tops your bucket list?  What was the last thing you crossed off your bucket list?
