This day was incredible. Jean sat next to Masakazu Mori on the plane ride from SF to Tokyo. He is a fourth-generation from Tokyo. They emailed and he set up an entire day with five of us. Mrs. Broos, Mrs. Burton, Mrs. Paschke, Mrs. Springof, and Mrs. Saenz. We started our journey at 10am. We bought a hundred yen ticket for the day to ride the subway. The first stop was at Hamarikyu Garden, then a beautiful cruise on on the Tokyo Cruise Line. It had been raining for four days, the rain has past, the skies opened, now 72 degrees. Off to a Japanese lunch in Asakusa. We then journeyed off to a walk to the Drum Museum, the largest of its kind in the world. They allow anyone to play on the instruments, Masakazu and Mrs. Broos performed a piece together. Tea time. Another tiny Japanese tea house in the city. This time we sat in chairs. The day had only began. There is a three-day festival in Tokyo, and guess what, today is the day of the parade. Off we went.As the sun set, the parade slowly passed. A Japanese parade with dancers and musicians. Masakazu had planned us to the minute. Yes, to another part of Toyko, market street, An old street with food shops. We each bought an apple. (Have you noticed that everything involved around eating!) As the sun was set, we lumbered to a high-rise building to see the city lights. Of course, he had even planned the FULL MOON. On the way, we stopped at a record store to buy J-pop music. Masakazu gave excellent directions to the genre we liked and picked out excellent music for each of us. The ten-hour day was almost finished. It was so hard to say goodbye. What a sweet, sweet soul. Thank you Masakazu.
