Tokyo Morning, Tokyo Night

I’m back in Tokyo, haven’t been here since July, though Japan in December took place.  Last night R took me to Hachibei, a first-rate basement yakitori place in Roppongi:

Just about the best kawa–chicken skin–I’ve ever had: Crispy, sauced, great crust.  And really first rate tsukune: minced chicken and bits of cartilage, sauced and perfectly charred.

Now the sky is lighting up with a view fourteen floors below of Hibaya Koan.  Soon it will be time to board a train to Haneda and then a flight to Kyushu.  Interviews await there.
