Tokyo day off.
Reunion today with a best friend from college days - two girls who used to walk proudly through the courtyard with their own sense of style, one with home-made clothes, the other with the world's straightest back, making heads turn.
Much has changed on campus, but a few of the european-style buildings, housing some professors, survive.
I spent time today mixing sound for Ogre and took a walk around Ginza to get bento lunch and a few little things. Humbling when you can't say anything to the cash register clerk. Good motivation to learn the language...fo' reelz!
Tomorrow it's off to Kyoto, where I am looking forward to gardens, temples, shrines, greenery, and a teahouse or two. Tokyo's polished and modern, but it's the spiritual side of things here that holds the most interest (we'll see, anyway).
