I had to go dig out some old photos from one of my trips to Tokyo, because my sister Beverly got to travel there for her job, and I just got an email from her this morning. It is her first time. She could hardly contain herself, my exact first impression (and second, third, fourth). Tokyo is one the great world cities culturally, if not the greatest. Bev lived in Italy for a while, and says in her email that Tokyo makes Paris, London and the other major European cities seem quaint. Tokyo is überhip, space age, other worldly, and a total sensory overload.
