(Intro from Tokyo I)
To New Yorkers: When in Tokyo, don’t ever cross the street against the lights. Drivers don’t expect it, don’t do it, you’ll live longer.
Eat at the tiny, little “restaurants” that hold only 5-6 people. There are “millions” of them.
You’re basically working in a carnival of people every day. It’s a shooting gallery.
The kids are wonderful. The people are polite. Forget the subways: it’s survival of the fittest, but fun.
Buy Fruit. It’s shockingly better than any you’ve ever had before.
The fish market has left Tokyo–a great place to shoot. (Sorry!) I don’t know where they moved to.
Tokyo, like NY, is overwhelming. Take it slow but enjoy the buzz. It is a place all its own.
