Last night I arrived in a haze of “welcome to Japan” signs. I was tired and hungry, but all of us was cattle herded right to the hotel with no problems.
Today I’ll be headed to many opening “welcome” speeches and small classes.. Should be exciting or at least awesome.
I love it here.. I’ve forgotten all the small details that make Japan so special. Like the bullhorn people use to get you into their little Japanese restaurant, or the little command control on the Toilet for endless configurable settings, or the way a yukata belt is folded on the dresser for you to use after you’ve taken a nice long Japanese bath..
It’s great! Just great!
