A travelogue of a trip to Japan the auhtor never took. Using music and images sent by a friend, this web site was created about what might have happened on the voyage.

"Aja, When all my dime dancing is through, I run to you." My friend went to Japan for a month to visit his girlfriend. He took pictures and movies while he was there and emailed them back to me on a semi-regular basis, in no real order, with few if any comments. I was listening to a lot of Steely Dan at the time, and his pictures came to mean something personal to me that he could never know. I used his source material to make this web site. You might say it's the travelogue of a trip I never took. Traveling without moving.
