Anatomy of an Unplanned Adventure
Ride rush-hour subway. Question TV reporter's judgment.
Breakfast: soba noodles at stand-up counter. Shrimp, in this case, has been replaced by tofu.
Engage in favorite Tokyo pastime: shopping. Visit photo booth arcade; take more incriminating photographs I never expect will be made public.
Discover gathering spot for lithe young Japanese men.
Encounter bizarre fashion trend known as Gothic Lolita. Or, in the case of these two, just Lolita.
Attend goma ceremony at sushi patron's temple. Debate whether indoor fires at wood-framed historical sites are really a good idea.
Visit tiny bar in Shinjuku area called GoldenGai. Make new friends; enjoy $20 bottle of beer.
Celebrate last night in Tokyo with a visit to the "doctor fish."
