Yesterday, it was a day starting with a 5K run, and then time spent interviewing folks and seeing friends in Roppongi. The area has its demimonde, but to be sure it also has two first rate art museums, remarkable buildings, and old lanes where embassies are housed from the early postwar era.
Two more interviews in the late afternoon about whisky and Zen, best of both worlds, and then a train ride to Meguro for dinner in a kakurega-type joint. Two handfuls of seats where the chef, she trained in Italy, served up delicious portions of pasta and decent Nebbiolo.
Soon the new train to Kanazawa and a couple of nights seeing friends in Yamanaka as well as six interviews over the next two days.
