Final trip to Tokyo this year is done. It was cold and snowed in some area. My stay in Tokyo in March ended with the big earthquakes on 3.11, which made me like a strayed dog in a big city. I am grateful that nothing unsafe happened in the subsequent trips. Hope it will remain so for the coming year.
