Ron of Japan: Chapter I
Hi everyone. This is our second day in Kyoto, Japan. We went to Gion last night, which is the famous geisha entertainment district of Kyoto. It was a very quaint street lined with trees, restaurants, bars, saunas, and a little stream. We have been drinking sake every night, which I love. Today we are going to visit a few temples, first with the Ginkanku Buddhist Shrine in the eastern part of Kyoto, which is not too far from our hotel.
We arrived in Tokyo a few days ago, and I went out to see DJ Heather within hours of our arrival at the club called “La Fabrique”, which was an ex-pat club. There was a handful of Americans, Canadians, and Europeans hanging out at the club, along with local Tokyoites. The Japanese went crazy over DJ Heather. It was insane. The crowd was extremely receptive to her. They screamed and cheered each and every time she made a cut. I met some very nice people there. The Japanese are extremely polite. I couldn’t believe I stayed at La Fabrique for 6 hours. I chatted with Heather a bit after her set, which was absolutely amazing, as always. By the time I left the club, it was daylight. I felt like I was in a movie set. There were various young Japanese going home from partying all night. I walked into my apartment at 7AM. I was up for 24 hours straight, I couldn’t believe I was still standing!
The first three days in Tokyo, we stayed at a really up and coming area called “Roppongi”, with an amazing shopping and entertaintment center called “Roppongi Hills|”. It is the ex-pat area of Tokyo, so I felt right at home. Did I mention that Tokyo is absolutely amazing? I went to Harajuku on my second day and saw all the beautiful creatures. I was thinking of Likalee while I was walking around the area. She would have been in Heaven there. Anyway, that’s it for now. I will post more later.
