04 Apr 2009: Five Years On

A picture


I made an effort to get out of the hotel on Monday, despite my body asking me kindly to stay in bed.

Shiodome was one of those new business areas that opened up late during my stay. It's still expanding, still crazy ambitious in its scope. I mean, just look at this picture.

I stayed in a new Starbucks for a few hours, remembering that Starbucks coffee in Japan is a lot nicer and milder than that you find in the UK (which, in turn, is milder than the incinerated mud you get in the US). Plus: Cinnamon rolls!!!!
