I spent all of yesterday in Tokyo. I really like Tokyo, especially Shibuya and Shinjuku during rush hour. I know it sounds crazy.
But there are very few places I have found that have a comparably dense energy: millions of frantic commuters trying to get to their trains, rushing to get snack in the departmentstore deli, pushing, fighting being passive agressively rude and selfish, selfish, selfish.
You should try it sometime.
It is the one time when it doesn't matter if you are Japanese or Gaijin. It is about getting what you want.
