It was farewell to the quiet backwater of Hokkaido, and hello to the world’s largest city (by population) – Tokyo! Time to get some work done!…
Alas, we were so busy we had zero time for tourisms. It was literally all work, work, work – strictly formal too: I wore a suit! Meetings, handshakes, discussions, and the inevitable low bows.

I tried my hand at fishing – but didn’t manage to catch anything! The fish just ignored me! ->
But I did manage to grab hold of a lobster! ->
