This was the view from our room on the 10th floor of the Hotel Arietta near Gotanda, Tokyo at 4am one day late in May.
I had one of those ‘suddenly alert’ jet lag moments you sometimes get at unexpected times in the middle of the night.
I couldn’t sleep for about an hour so instead of fighting it, I took to soaking up the early morning atmosphere outside our window.
It was humid and surprisingly quiet.
