Tokyo is big and fast and intense and it’ll make you tired. And, many months of the year, hot and sweaty too. Fortunately, it offers a solution for these problems.
Here’s how big:
The solution: more or less everywhere you go, there are vending machines. In every vending machine, you can, for ¥100 ± ¥20, buy iced coffee. It is really strong and really cold and really sweet and has a whole lot of caffeine. If they took the vending machines away, Tokyo would grind to a halt, I’m convinced.
On another subject, those impressive views of Tokyo are from Sun’s big Tokyo office, which is at a subway station named Yoga, full address 4-10-1 Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, but I can’t convince either Yahoo! or Google maps to show it to me. It’s a little bit further than you’d like from downtown, but is the view ever wonderful.
