Tokyo is an all singing, all dancing, cosmopolitan city that has something to offer everyone 24 hours a day.
EXCEPT FOR THE BLOODY TRANSPORT TO GO WITH IT.
I'd like to go out until 2am. I passionately hate having to choose between the last sodding train at half midnight or 1am or spend money and stay out until they start up again. I really don't like not having this choice. Taxi's aren't an option as they are so expensive. This is just so frustrating. For a city like Tokyo to not have all night trains or night buses is ridiculous. Or maybe London just spoiled me?
Another frustrating thing: not so much about Tokyo in general but teaching and living here: is how transient it all is. I found out about another friend today who is leaving at Christmas. Sad. I mean I know there'll be people coming and going for as long as I'm here, but that isn't really the point I'm making.
