Brad and I walked out for dinner in Akasaka (central Tokyo) this evening. Here are some things we saw.

A wrong turn leads to a tiny playground, visit this rocking horses on the grounds of a well-kept shrine. An older gentleman decorates one of the shrines with small orange trees.

A young Japanese guy smoking a cigarette outside Bad Girrls hostess bar, bronchi wearing a shirt that says, sale “Its hard to be humble when you’re from Missouri”.

The Okinawanese restaurant we are headed for based on a website review of about a year ago is long gone. Instead I have French champagne and a bowl of carbonara.
