History and heritage.
manga and anime cartoons
all the electronics you can imagine
and vending machines
tempered with a timeless awareness of the seasons.
We began our day at the Edo-Tokyo Museum, went on to Akihabara Electric Town and finished it in Ginza, the smart shopping district. We saw women dressed in kimono and girls dressed as maids. We enjoyed fine art and woodblock prints and later, manga and video game characters. A woman was sitting in the computer store, selecting photographs of her garden to print out at a coin operated machine whilst the man next to her was selecting a few of naked women.
What will be the image which stays with us?
We woke this morning to clear sky and our favourite view, this time directly from our bedroom window.
We can go home now.
