This page shows my personal view of the Tokyo area of the country of Japan as visited in 1983 and 1985.
You can also see my spring 2000 visit as shown at my Japan 2000 and Tokyo 2000 pages.

Japan provides plenty to eat and drink.
One of the big surprises was the many vending machines on busy street corners. They offer everything from coffee to beer to porn. Vandalism is rare in Japan.
You can also find the regular western brand names.

The basements of department stores are a convenient place to stock up -- restaurants can be extremely expensive.
I think that the kid was trying to beat the summer heat at his parents food stall.
Outside many Japanese restaurants there are plastic reproductions of the food inside. This is very convenient for tourists.
I ate a lot of convenience store takeout food.

One of the great sights of Japan is the Tsukiji Fish Market. It is the world's busiest and there is a vast variety to see, buy and taste.
