Foto Fantravaganza!

OK, Johnny and Tara should be coming home today since they left tomorrow, or actually they meant to leave but then Tara tweeted that they got kinda stuck and did NOT take off as planned because their plane was not terribly interested in departing Japan, having perhaps become completely enamored of the supreme cleanliness of it all and the amazing customer service, so it dug in its wheels and refused to budge and I think they ended up having to switch planes which, when I began writing this, hadn't made a damn bit of difference because they were still in Tokyo. But I believe they've now taken off, and hopefully by the time you read this they'll be well on their way to having Wednesday twice and maybe even finally getting some sleep.

In the meantime, we have a bit more picspam to pore over! Today's series comes from the all-day fan meeting held in Tokyo on Monday that I believe included a practice session in the morning at which fans could watch Johnny skate; a break for lunch; a book signing and chat session; another break for dinner (during which Johnny shopped); and a birthday party for Johnny!

We pick up our story after the morning skating session ...

is waiting for the other to arrive.

Excited fans seat themselves in an extremely
orderly fashion in preparation for chatting
and for the book signing hosted by Shinshokan,

I love seeing Johnny in a happy sea of fans! By all accounts, it sounds like he and Tara had a wonderful trip to Japan. We definitely benefited via a treasure trove of pics, vids, and stories! I hope Johnny is able to skate for them again soon. ♥

So wonderful to feel all the love in the room flowing back and forth between Johnny and his Japanese fans.

Thank you, Tara, for being our sharp-eyed photographertress and videographertress, too. And thanks, Binky, for your exquisite blogtress abilities.

It is good that the Japanese are very strict and clean about their airplanes, so Tara and Johnny will have a safe ride home.

He still has the best landing and ride out on the trip axel! Go Johnny!

It's no wonder why Johnny loves Japan! The fans there are wonderful and they know how to treat a guest. But Johnny returns the favor in kind!

Thanks for the pics and video Tara, and thanks for the blog MM!

I love the Japanese Johnny's Angels! Nice to see so many happy faces (but how can one not be happy when Johnny is around)?
