We saw plenty beautiful, historic, inspiring sights in Tokyo. Yet, it’s the little differences that have stayed with me since our visit a few years ago. It’s the vending machines, trash cans, Starbucks signs, automatic doors, and subway stations. So similar and familiar in most ways, but different. Cleaner or faster or louder. These are the small impressions that are so hard to capture in photos or describe to friends back home. I mean, who wants to hear about the announcer at the baseball game or the hotel mirror that magically remains un-fogged after a shower? Some things you just have to see for yourself.
