This is actually a really good suggestion.

I am remembering that Ole had quite an elaborate guide to Hiroshima for 
IETF participants on a website weeks before IETF 76 - 
http://www.yikes.com/~ole/store/Hiroshima/Essentials.html 
<http://www.yikes.com/%7Eole/store/Hiroshima/Essentials.html>.

I also remember reading how to find the closest 7-11 to the train 
station, get cash from the ATM there, and even which flight of stairs to 
walk up, to get to my hotel. People did amazing work (sample page - 
http://www.ietf76.jp/access/).

I THINK this might have been before we had meeting wikis (at least a 
meeting wiki doesn't show up on the frozen IETF 76 meeting page), but if 
we had the IETF 88 wiki up now, perhaps we could end up with an equally 
fabulous guide before we get on planes/trains/whatever ...
