I woke up to my first morning in Tokyo a little after 03:30. By 06:00 I had already read (((The Painter of Battles by Arturo Perez-Reverte))), sat zazen for 40 minutes, experienced an earthquake, and washed my face to go out for a walk.
Lobby call was noon, and the Blue Note van left for Yokohama at 12:15.
Here are a few first photos, starting with the view from my room. President Obama was in Tokyo on Friday and Saturday and security around the hotel was intense.
