What a city. we were lucky to be in Hiroo, a small village-like setting in central Tokyo, an ex-Pat area, full of embassies, and at Azuba Court Apartments, where Alex Lambley suggested we stay. Hiroo felt like a village and I could prepare myself for the Metro, the crowds and the complexity that is Tokyo. So well organized, but intense and always moving. Courtesy everywhere. Every area of the city has an entirely unique personality. We only brushed the surface. After 7 days, on to Shiagaraki by the Shingazen.
