More Japan stuff...

Just a quickie before heading back out for dinner...

I LOVE JAPAN! There... I said it... and I feel better now for having done it. Tokyo is beyond comprehension until you see it for yourself. I am beyond words for this experience. I actually really enjoy Taiwan too- especially the people- but there is something otherworldly about Japan. The beauty just seems to never stop. I am in constant awe of the city.

This is the night view from my room in the hotel... amazing. I am in the area of Tokyo known as Asakusa. It has one of the most famous temples in Japan. It was once the seat of the nation's power, during the Shogun era.

I still feel pretty unworthy of being here... not that I'm going to tell my boss or coworkers that...

Visiting the bike shops was really great and I'll have more pictures from that later, but now I have to run down to the lobby for another mindblowing meal.

Japan's an eye opener. Too much to see that you end up walking around that you don't watch where you're going. When you're in that state of mind it's easy to forget that traffic runs on the left side of the road. Stay safe. Have fun. Drink shochu. Rip it up on karaoke.
