Seems like everybody wants to say they’ve been to Tokyo. Sort of like everybody wants to see Rock City or get run over by a speeding bus. It just so happens that Tokyo–which wants to be NYC so much, its become LA–is a mix of both. The crew took the Shinkansen up the coast to the capital city and took a boat excursion up the Sumida River, where we saw some lovely bridge and the world’s largest golden cheeto. After an a hour of fighting the crowds at a nearby shopping district, it was back on the subway and retracing our steps to Osaka.
