Going to Japan!!! Photography advice?

+1 on getting a JR Pass and a Pocket WIFI. Not all bullet trains, buses, local trains and ferries are accessible using a JR Pass though. If you are only staying in the Tokyo area,I think, there are three different passes to choose from. Not really sure on that, because when we went to Japan this year in early September, we opted for the national pass and it saved us $$ on the few times we used the bullet train to and from Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto and Anjo City.
The Tokyo train station is huge with tons of restaurants, shops and people (lots of people) to see, but there are only two camera shops in the station that are really small (maybe 40 x 15 feet) so your best bet would be to shop at the various camera stores elsewhere in Tokyo. Be sure to show your passport when you shop anywhere in Japan to get a tourist discounts (tax). Not all shops give discounts though.
A couple of things I noticed in Japan are, trash cans are few and far between and people riding escalators are always on the left side, unless one is in a hurry, they walk or run up/down on the right side. Just one of my observations over there.:)
You should look online to see if there are any festivals worth seeing in the time frame you will be in Tokyo.
Also, think about renting/buying an ultra wide starting at 8, 10 or 12 mm for those photos that 18mm won't be able to cover. And maybe something longer than your 50mm for those tighter shots during those festivals?

Open Box Warranty

I recently ordered an open box Tamron 150-600 from B& H. Before purchasing it, I looked at it's description to see if there was any manufacturer warranty included with it but I didn't see anything listed regarding manufacturer warranty. The only place I seen any warranty info was on the drop down list of the used ratings. It showed "OB - Full manufacturer warranty", seeing that I thought it would come with Tamrons full 7 year warranty, so I ordered it. Imagine my surprise when it arrived with a sticker on the box saying it only has Tamron's 1 year warranty included with it. I understand if Tamron doesn't want to include their full 7 year warranty on an open box item but why didn't it show that it only comes with a 1 year warranty on your description of the item? I can't provide a link to the 150-600 lens that I ordered because" the page might have moved or is no longer available".

Bering Sea Hunters



Here's winter scene taken in the middle of January 2010. Sadly, this type of scene may not be taken again (here at least) due to the climate change that has been happening over the years. Last year, there was open seas all winter long when it used to be all covered in sea ice. To give you an idea, one of the coldest winter months (February) last winter averaged just around the freezing point when in the past the wind chills would've averaged around minus 40 - 55 degrees F.
Anyway, more winter please.

Flickr grandfathered Pro subscriptions

"When grandfathered subscriptions next come up for renewal, they’ll be charged the current Pro rate, though the plan duration and billing cycle will stay the same. New Pros currently pay $49.99 per year or $5.99 per month, depending on the plan. Therefore, 2-year Pros will pay $99.98 bi-annually, 1-year Pros will pay $49.99 annually, and 3-month Pros will pay $17.97 every three months."

I am currently on the $24.95 plan until my subscription is up for renewal next April. Until then I will be watching to see if paying twice the amount I'm paying now will be worth it.

Lowepro Nova 180 AW II inside dimensions are pretty close to your Kata's dimensions. The ProTactic 180 AWII dimensions look just a bit bigger.
