What Time Is It?

TOKYO — The streets were bright tonight — so much so that it seemed like it was daytime. It might as well have been. I’m not sure what time it is. All I know is: It’s evening here in Japan and we’re going to grab something to eat.

I couldn’t help but snap a few pictures. This was really my first glimpse of Japan. The subway and the streets were busy to say the least.

We hit up Shirokiya — a local joint my friend suggested. Good call. We started with some vegetable, bamboo perhaps. It had a nice kick to it. Then came the rest of the food. Chicken was a theme, it seems, but there were all sorts of other items for the taking, ranging from pizza to octopus.

At the restaurant, folks were clearly having a good time blowing off steam at the end of a long week. A couple of beers later and I’m ready to call Day 1 in Japan … a day.

See you on the flip side…
