First day in Tokyo

Well it has no been dificult. Took the plane at 11:45 on Friday, and arrived in Tokyo at 6:50 next day (direct flight).
Finding the hotel in Shinjuku has been less difficult than expected, even zith the fact than some directions are only in Japanese kanji.
Some first impressions:

  • people here really wear Japanese traditional clothes (sometimes)

  • there are not waste bins anywhere, but the streets are always pristinely clean

  • there are very few tourists here

  • a lot of homeless people in the streets (well no more than in Paris), but never begging for anything...

  • hot and damp here

  • energizing drinks in vending machines anyzhere, cheap

  • people are very friendly
