Wineweek 49: Lost in Translation?

Its Sunday again and our time in Tokyo is soon coming to an end. It has been a great trip, but as with all of our travels, I do love going home. One day left, so I will keep this short. Tokyo has really changed since I was here last. Not in spirit, but the city that has been characterized as confusing to foreigners has become a much easier travel destination. Wifi is widely available, signs and announcements are now also in English and our beloved credit cards are accepted almost everywhere. Ten years ago I remember it being very difficult to navigate as I still had a Nokia with no internet connection. Back then you of course managed as well, but I cant really imagine, any more, a life without a smartphone. Technology has of course made our lives easier, however I suspect Tokyo is also preparing for the Olympic games in 2020 with improved communication.

As mentioned earlier in the week, there is not that much time for writing. So I will save up all the fun stories related to the below pictures for a little bit later (next week). As a teaser I can reveal that there will be more wine-stories that I initially expected. Both quality and prices have been better than I expected. We even tasted an excellent Japanese white Kerner from Hokkaido and of course some great sakes. Yes, it has been a great week indeed. Can’t wait to tell you all about it. Here is another set of shots to get you into the Tokyo state of mind. Have a great week!
