Mine is a milk run. I always go to the same places for work. Korea, Okinawa, Guam, and back to Tokyo. It's not bad and you get to see stuff but it can get old.
The NY's party is called Shinnen Kai...or something close to that. All you can eat/drink for 2 hours is a typical setup, then folks go out on their own from there. There are similar things before NYs called Bonnen kai.
Do you call yourself Bokken because of a martial arts practice?
