The city was huge, even though it’s bigger these days. But always in order. You could hear a whisper on a packed subway car. There’s no jaywalking. Everything works as it should…in a city of 18 million people. But anyone who has been to Japan or know the culture knows that there are layers and layers of complexity and subtleties that you discover over time. //
