It is the ungodly hour of 5:00 A.M. here at Haneda where, after a 4;15 start at the Conrad in Tokyo, we await boarding time for the flight to Detroit. Four hours of intermittent sleep were compensated by a view of the sun rising of the harbor. Chump change, exhausted.
Yesterday it was plenty of wandering the hot streets of Ginza. A very cool coffee cafe playing Bechet. Purchases of yuba, wasabi, Nikka whisky, and unagi bento for home and the ride home. Then last night, after drinks at the Conrad, in the bar on the 28th Floor, it was a wild, long ride to way too much delicious yakitori.
No wonder Congress here is called The Diet.
