Phase 2: Tokyo

We arrived in Shiodome late last night, checked in, and went to bed … boy, was I tired!  I started watching the final round of the British Open and passed out – woke up around 2:30am with the TV still on!  I skipped the breakfast buffet this morning because it’s not very good … went instead to Starbuck’s and Family Mart to get some espresso and snacks to tide me over until lunch.  We did 3 shows yesterday at the Music Oasis in Narita airport before an appreciative crowd, and we even had some fans who came to all 5 shows!  Thank you to Masako and the gang for being there!  Since we’re flying out of Narita next week, I have to try the sushi restaurant that Nick guys ate at yesterday … they said it was the best sushi they’ve had since we were in Las Vegas at our friend Kats’ sushi bar in Caesar’s.  I don’t know if I want to pay $16 for one piece of ohtoro and a beer though!

We have 4 appearances this afternoon around Tokyo, so we’re going to be on the go until early evening … I hope they’re indoors and out of the heat & humidity.  I’m more concerned for our dancer, Sarah,  and Miss Hawaii USA, Aureana, since they’ll be doing hula in the heat … but no worries – these girls are tough and I’m sure they’ve performed under a lot tougher conditions.  I hope we get back in time to make our usual shopping trip over to the Don-Ki store.  That place has absolutely everything you can imagine – from two-foot long Slim Jims (pepperoni sticks) to Rolex watches!  My kind of place …

Peace,  Lloy”D”
