4 months in Japan: updated bucket list

Time flies like an arrow...  actually, more like a shinkansen. (High five for the super obvious Japan related metaphor).
So I've been here 4 months. and since I'm super behind with blogging, I can't do a link round up of last month because none of those posts have been written yet... whoops.
