Uneventful day. First day is always the hardest. Airplanes and hotel check-ins.
Didn't actually get to bed until 12:30am Japan time. Which is something like 6:30am LA time.
It's always hard leaving LA when the weather is so nice.

The hardest part about Tokyo is figuring out the train system. Not as bad as New York because at least everything is labeled. But I couldn't imagine doing this without the help my fluent Japanese wife. We ran across one American who was moving here for a year to learn Japanese. He was getting all mixed up. As were we, and we've been here before.
It doesn't help that it was 5:00am L.A. time as well.
