When a friend, Dawn Lintern, who is the lead singer in a band called Das Fluff (dasfluff.com) was on a tour in Tokyo, she posted these wonderful first impressions of Japan on her Facebook page.
I asked if I could share it here. If you've never been to Japan - this conjures up just the right image I think...
"Fish that's still jumping when it gets delivered to the restaurant, Geisha girls with slimy business men, cigarette smoke, cherry blossom, litter-free streets, teenage girls dressed like 5 year olds, courtesy, friendliness, modesty, non-agressive driving, orderly queues, Asahi, being treated like a pop goddess (for one night, at least), dogs in sunglasses, an insanely efficient transport service, soundchecks that run to schedule and the worst cover version of Radiohead's Karma Police ever.
I don't want to go back to London."
I know how she feels. :-)
Dawn enjoyed it so much that she wrote a song about all the things she loved about the city and Japan. It's called Tokyo Daisuki - or I Love Tokyo. I hope you enjoy it:

Nice idea Regina.
I do like to visit museums and galleries when travelling across Japan but as yet don’t have a great deal of experience of them.
I have posted an article about visiting the Studio Ghibli Museum in Tokyo though (which I would thoroughly recommend): https://www.therealjapan.com/a-visit-to-the-studio-ghibli-museum/
