Travel Channel had an hour long feature about Tokyo last night. With Stu, and others, living in Japan I thought I would watch to get an idea of what life would be like there.
My head is still swirling. I think they said 35 million people in the city. The place is a neon/tech/restaurant/rich young people/culture mix/crowded/fast paced non-stop amusement park.
Most notable were the prices for goods. Toilets $4000.00 (I got the impression Japanese have a fixation with toilets), toy dogs $800.00, a bottle of cognac $4500.00, etc.
Half the population, meaning all adults, have cel phones.
The cameras seemed to focus a lot on young pretty girls and there does seem to be an abundance of those.
If it runs again, I advise watching. Very interesting and informative.
