Just got back from a biz trip in Tokyo. Arrived late Monday, 2007-11-26 and experienced my first earthquake in a couple of decades. This was followed by another a few days later--2007-11-30.
The rest of the trip was largely uneventful--much as these two mild quakes were uneventful. Yakiniku (Korean BBQ) in Tokyo is a delicious alternative to more sushi. The Tacos at the Royal Host in Narita's Terminal 1 airport are edible and the burger there is actually quite good. There is no division between the smoking section and the non-smoking section. However, overall there was much less smoke on this trip to Tokyo than my trip two years ago. That's a good thing.
