Tokyo – just a cracking place to live

So its my last full day in Tokyo today. As you may have gathered I think this place is great. There is no crime, the place is clean, the people are amazingly respectful of each other, its easy to get around and there are loads of good places to go out at night (and they don’t close). On the negative side, well – they have earthquakes, can’t think of anything else.

Last thing before I leave, if you ever find yourself in Tokyo (and I recommend you do) here are a few of suggestions:

- Bars: Train Bar; Geronimos; the Golden Gai area

- Restaurants: any of the three Ty Harbour restaurants, Bourbon Street (which is where I'm off to tonight) and also have a go at Okonomiyaki which was v good

- Baseball: get a ticket to see the Swallows in the cheap seats

- Sumo is worth an afternoon (but get a seat upstairs rather than a mat downstairs)

- Sightseeing: Ueno Park is full of things to see; Senso-Ji in Asakusa is impressive; and Yoyogi Park is full of weird stuff going on (including the Coz-Play girls)

- Culture: the Kabuki theatre was interesting

If you missed any of those things then look below, I've talked about all of them at some point over the last 6 months. Right, time for NY…to be continued (probably next week).

New York might be a bit of a shock.

I hope that you can keep this blog going after the move to the US, it's been fun.
