The sounds were information overload.
Traveling to Tokyo felt somewhat like landing in an alternate reality... a reality I could stand behind.
The spotless metro station, the elaborate
accommodations for those with special needs,
the extensive rules that people actually listened
to, the disarming quiet even in a crowd of people,
the unique juxtaposition between ancient
tradition and the height of technology, and
of course, the obsession with all things cute.
I'll be back.
