Movie

Saw Lost in Translation last night. I loved it. It did a wonderful job of portraying how a Westerner can feel wandering around Tokyo. It is such a huge, intimidating city. There is no way a non-Japanese person can blend in so one becomes the minority. It is such a highly developed, technological city, yet it is so different than the States or Europe. I was lucky enough to have a guide, but I can imagine how daunting it can be to wander around by yourself; You can't even try to pronounce the characters of the written language. I can remember being at a ramen place and trying to match the characters that went with the pictures to the characters on the price list.

I did have a better time in Tokyo than those 2 did though. I loved it.
