People and Life, Tokyo: 32 reviews and 33 photos

Fondest memory: There are numerous small delights to be noticed in Japan, from the point of view of a London boy. The plant pots and flower baskets outside tiny homes in urban Tokyo...The many city workers (e.g. building site security, cleaners in shopping malls) who sport immaculate uniforms and seemingly hold some pride in what they do, the lack of litter and graffiti. These all, in a way, reflect one stereotype...the clean, safe, well-ordered Tokyo. This is certainly what I noticed when comparing with my own hometown. However, there was another abiding memory I brought back to Old Blighty with me; the fun-loving, happy young people I spent some time with. I honestly belive that the people I met had a capacity for fun that could rival the Thais! OK, it generally took some alcohol involvement before the shyness dissipated, but in a way that echos how us Brits can often be.
