It was a relief that both feet were on the ground in Tokyo! The Japanese people are so polite that it was almost odd that there were hardly any second glances as I utilised most modes of transport to get from Narita into central Tokyo to the Shibuya Crossing. I observed the proceedings for a while and there appeared to be a natural rhythm on the crossing as I saw no one bumping into anyone. Once I had plucked up the courage to begin I played across all five sections choosing the one furthest away from the only policeman that I saw and then I left the scene as fast as I could! I was grateful to receive help with getting there and the taking of the video. I was also determined to do something traditional in Tokyo and Kimono fitting fitted the bill!.
