Robb, my editor at Tokyo Q, points out that Google Maps now covers Tokyo! It’s fun trying to zoom in on certain locations, like Meiji Jingu, or Tokyo Tower. Update: Get a load of Muji’s Yurakucho store’s red roof!
Spend a Sunday afternoon with Patrick Macias and Junko Mizuno in Kichijoji.
Even though I’ve lived in Tokyo for years now, I was in Takadanobaba (two stations away from where I live) for the very first time tonight. Met up with Craig, who brought me to a great little Okinawa restaurant (loved the taco rice), and then we sort of wandered around, ending up sitting under Waseda […]
So I did my week of Gridskipper (3rd time), and had a pretty good time doing it. Sure, it’s a hell of a lot of work, but as I go along I seem to be getting a better handle on it. Here are the Tokyo-related posts I did (I really tried not to rely on […]
