Here we are, after a very long day of travel, in a city of over 20 million people, feeling completely and utterly at home…

Tokyo defies everything you think about a crowded, modern city – it’s intimate, relaxed, safe and everywhere you look, people and making the most of life and having FUN!!!

Last might was the lunar eclipse and everywhere people were looking to the sky, taking photos with their phones (?!) and enjoying the moment. After a dinner of tempura dishes, we got caught up in the friendly madness and despite it being bloody freezing, waited and watched as the moon slid into darkness…

The memorable image of the night was not so much the moon but a group of crazy people lying on the ground, wrapped in one scarf and watching skyward with much merriment. As time went on, random people joined this horizontal conga line!

Maybe it was the moon or maybe, it’s just Tokyo!
