Friday, July 24, 2009


Early morning, wandering through the streets around my hotel, searching for breakfast while everyone else hurries to work.

The mix of buildings feels as complex as the Kanji characters.

Finally found a nice breakfast place. Everyone here wears a suit for work and everyone seems to have black pants and a white shirt. Oh and of course everyone is quiet and reads.

After 8 hours of watching CG animation/effects/visualizations etc... we grabbed a cab to ave dinner.

Restaurant Kurosawa. Owned by Kurosawa's son. Lovely and traditional from the outside as well as from the inside.

Waiting for the food, everything looks so neat. And the food, of course, was unbelievably tasty.

A short drink, or two, before falling into bead and hopefully sleeping through the night without any sudden jetlag caused, middle of the night, wake ups.

Crossing the pacific

The beauty of the view never ceases to amaze me.
First time in my life that I am flying west to get to the east !
Outside its still bright and sunny but in the plane they switched to 'let's pretend its night' mode.
After thousands of miles of pacific ocean we descend onto japan, passing, just before we land, over these beautiful golf courses.
I can never tell how much time I spend in the plane, it feels as if just a few hours passed and at the same time as if I spend days in that plane.

Tokyo bathrooms

I just wanted to quickly visit the bathroom before heading into Tokyo. Though I guess this might take longer than expected.

Ok, I definitely do not want to use any of these buttons!

Maybe the manual will help ?
Now where did I need to go again?

Ohhh, I missed these Japanese vending machines !

It is so quiet in the metro. Everyone is reading, in their books, on their phones and actually quite a lot of people are reading on their DS.

Tiny but homy, I finally arrived at my hotel :)

Packing and waiting

Hhhmmm... I hope I didn't forget anything. Its so little that it looks as if something is missing.
Waiting for boarding I listen to the Japanese anouncer from the speakers and remember what a beautifull melody, rythm and tonality Japanese has. How lovely will the next few days be, surrounded by pure melody, devoid of meaning. (At least for me )
