Panos (a dude I work with) and I got to Tokyo ok last night. The flight left SFO at about 1pm and got into Narita airport at about 4pm. By the time we’d done immigration and collected our bags we only had about a ten minute wait for the limousine bus to the hotel.
We’re staying in Shibuya, which seems to be a bit of a shopping district. We managed to do the pointing a menu food ordering thing for dinner last night, and then I went to bed.
Initial impressions of Tokyo:
- Its very clean and amazingly well organised. People naturally line up, and customer service is much better than it is in the US.
- Its not as crowded as I expected.
- English is very common, but don’t expect people on the streets to actually speak it.
