Down to my last couple of days in Tokyo, a great visit. I spent some of today before the rain on a minor suburban adventure to visit Shimo-kitazawa: a sort-of nicer Camden, now menaced, as usual by development.
Had lunch in a cafe set to the Stone’s music at about the time of Altamont, Gimme Shelter, I know it’s not real but pleasant to bathe in some of those previous days. Kids cycling around with solid guitar cases strapped on their backs too.
Back to London on Wednesday, just my fairly minimal Japanese is beginning to function too.
