Tokyo in 4 days

Part of the epic winter vacation that Joe and I took in December, included 4 days and 3 nights in Tokyo.  Joe's Uncle David and Michiko were our hosts, giving us a whirlwind tour of Tokyo where we literally started running for trains the second we got off the plane.  I've never been to Japan before, and I was truly out of my element and haven't felt more American than I have in a while, with unspoken rules like "No talking on the train", "Picking your teeth in public is rude, but picking your nose isn't" and "Being polite is more important than being right" which was a hard one for me, ha ha:)  I feel like I'm generally a nice and tactful person, but I got nothing on the Japanese!  But seriously, if someone cuts in front of you in line, is it really that terrible to direct them to the end of the block long line?  Looking back at my trip diary, I spent 2 pages detailing the wonder and joy of their toilets.  And Joe and I couldn't get enough of the crazy tv shows.  Or how amazing the food was, from fancy restaurants to 7-11.  And their camera stores, their beautiful camera stores!  I'm lucky I wasn't quick enough to calculate the exchange rate, or else I'd have left with a backpack full of cameras.  Two full days certainly isn't enough time to see Tokyo, and with the glimpse of how interesting and cool a place it is, we're already scheming on how to make the trip again:)
