Warming up

Well the game is over, with Australia getting a well deserved draw after an exciting 0 – 0 draw against Japan on Tuesday 11th June.

The warm up for the game started at the Hobgoblin pub in Roppongi, chosen I believe as it is the local haunt of a number of ex-pat supporters. Great venue, a bit hard to find, and about an hour away from the ground in Saitama.

Probably 150 Green and Gold Army fans packed the pub for a few hours.

About TonyJ2

I live in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. I started writing stories about my trips to Japan largely to be able to print them out for my Mum to read. Now it has got a bit out of control. After nine trips, 100+ posts and another 200 in rough draft, my irregular postings on Having a Ball in Japan will go on for a few years yet. Having a Ball in Japan is not just a bunch of travel photos, and picks up my interests in the history and culture of Japan, emergency services and disaster management, as well as hours travelling by railways big, small and tiny. Awareness to Action takes the emergency services and disaster management theme deeper into experience and resilience. Effectively Awareness to Action is my professional blog. My partner and I have been lucky enough to do a fair bit of travel both in Australia and overseas. Escaping the Nest chronicles our times in United States, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and soon to be Ireland. Tony
