This is a very interesting city with lots and lots of people. The Metro system is busier than the London Underground and during the rush hour they employ staff wearing litttle white gloves to push people onto the trains to make sure they can get as many on as possible! The children here go to school from 8.30am - 4.30pm and then have cramming classes for another couple of hours. They also go in on a Saturday morning and sometimes Sundays too! The first two nights I had halloween parties to go to and they were a lot of fun with lots of people dressed up. Yesterday I saw a traditional Japanese wedding which is quite unusual. I also saw lots of children dressed up in kimonos to celebrate their 753 festival.
I've posted a few pictures of the last few days so take a look if you like.
Right ho - off to play a bit of Wii Mario Kart now :-)
