My first impression when coming to Japan was actually the Aiport. Narita seemed to be quite old and totally not giving the stereotypical impression of “the Future”, it looked pretty similar to any other airport around the world. With one exception: music. 君をのせて, Kimi wo Nosete from Joe Hisaishi. And that made the difference. Most likely there is no other country in the world where you might hear this song in public. That’s how it started, and that was just the beginning.
Tokyo is one of the busiest cities in the world. It is very crowded. Most likely one cannot imagine how crowded, if they haven’t been to similar environment. Tokyo is living organism, everything in this city works to fulfil it’s role, to make the city function. And it is simply wonderful to make one step away. And watch.
