When it’s 40 degrees outside in Tokyo, the obvious thing to do is pay $70 to go into a bar where it’s 20 degrees. But hey, drinks in ice glasses!

After a grand slam to put the Giants up 4-1 over the rival Tigers.
The beers change but the game remains the same.
We’re now at a place called Lake Nojiri just outside of Nagano, and I thought I’d follow up on this post with a few more thoughts.
- The concept of “tipping” doesn’t exist in Japan. The price on the menu is what you pay. It’s awesome.
- At least, I hope the concept of tipping doesn’t exist — or else I’ve been pissing off a lot of people.
- Precision with time is very important here. Everything is on time. Trains leave the second they’re supposed to.
- Perhaps related to #3, everyone walks really fast.

It’s early morning of day three in Tokyo, Japan (well, full day two). Some early observations about the city:
- Everyone is extremely friendly. Sarah and I have looked lost a few times and unprompted, strangers will come up and ask us if we need help. They don’t want anything in return, just to help.
- The subway system is actually pretty easy to get around once you realize the numbering/coloring system (since we don’t speak or read Japanese).
- As expected, the sushi here is excellent. 1,000 times better than anything I’ve ever had in the United States.
