Yeah, sure. We'll just have to decide on something.  :D

Here's a rather rough mock-up incorporating a few of the design elements I suggested earlier.

Did you guys fill out the survey? What did you put for dining times?

We signed up for the earlier fixed dining time.  It would be fun if we were all dining together.  We could get assigned the same table pretty easily if we asked.

Ok, I signed us up for that as well.

Scott and Natasha are early fixed, too.

I'll talk to Jeff @ BGG when the time comes to try to put us together for supper.  We may be too many for a single table :).

I think you are all staying in the Tokyo area for a week afterward?  (We plan to fly home on the Saturday after we arrive.)  I plan on making a list of the things we want to do.  We can maybe coordinate our lists and make group outings where more than one person/couple plans to do something.

We're still considering accommodation options.  I'm tempted to stay at the Hilton in Shinjuku, or at the hotel at the central Tokyo train station (which could not be better located), but it would probably cost around $400 a night (Tokyo is expensive).  Business hotels are less expensive but will be further out in the periphery and will require a longer train trip to get anywhere interesting, and the rooms tend to be very tiny.  B&B-type accommodation might be an option too, although getting accommodation for all of us, if we wanted to stay at the same place, might be a challenge.

We had a bunch of Aeroplan miles, and I found a single flight home on the day we wanted so I booked our one-way trip home:

2020/09/26
AC   10 NRT-YYC 16:25-11:05
AC8434 YYC-YQR 14:45-16:11

We get home 14 minutes "before" we left :)

Scott and Natasha have booked on the same flights.  I heard Jill and her son have booked but don't know what day they're flying home, or what airline/path.

Check it out if you have points. If not, feel free to book on the same flights if it works for you when the one-way fares come down.  Looks like $1,100 one-way is realistic.  We paid 37,500 Aeroplan miles plus about $172 Cdn in taxes per ticket.

We plan to fly out Thursday, September 3 but haven't booked yet.

I think Natasha said she could check bookings as far as mid-late August right now so You’d think Sep will be available soon.
