They were nice enough to empty an afternoon for some sightseeing.
Things didn't start off too well. We were delayed by an hour departing from Tokyo Narita International Airport. Culprit: "paperwork" according to captain of American Airlines flight 154.

The delay resulted in us Boston passengers missing our connection. We were rebooked on a much later flight, which I managed to standby onto an earlier one. My baggage, however, couldn't make it and were sent to me only the following morning.

The following day on the way to the conference I passed by the entrance of Boston Children's Hospital - one of the best children's hospital in the States if not the world.
It must be every (aspiring) pediatrician's dream to be working in here, including me
I will save the conference itself for another post.
Fast forward to leaving Boston. This is Japan Airlines flight 007 operating Boston Logan to Tokyo Narita. The Boeing 787 is fresh from the factory and a very impressive machine to fly in, despite it still being a pressurized metal (and carbon fiber) tube.
