Monday morning, Memorial Day weekend, I woke up early enough (better said my dog woke me up) and decided to just slap some songs together I have been listening to (on and off again) for the past few weeks. Some old, some not. I was surprised to record this mix in just one take.

Shops were typically a surprise since I could not read the signs to know what was inside.
新幹線, Shinkansen (bullet train) to Tokyo.
Shibuya crossing reportedly the world's busiest intersection. All traffic, in all directions stops and everyone scrambles to get where they are going.
Dinner was always a surprise. Here we have some of the ingredients for Okonomiyaki.
Seafood is everywhere.
View from the New York Bar at the Park Hyatt. Yes, where Bill Murray had drinks with Scarlett Johansson in that movie.
Forget trying to figure out the Tokyo metro map written in Kanji. But the Japanese are very friendly and helpful. I even had people approach me asking if I needed help (I did).
Harajuku station. You can see a couple of the Lolita girls just hanging out.
Hello Kitty floor at Kiddy Land.
Barrels of sake donated to the Meiji Shrine.
One of the world's largest Torii (gate) leading to the Meiji Shrine complex.
Mt. Fuji from the bullet train.
HOME! Downtown Miami, the engine covered up my apartment building.
