hello Tokyo


For nearly 35 years, this was my first view of Tokyo.After a 12 day passage across the Pacific, south to north, if the weather was clear, one would be rewarded with a view of Mt Fuji.Mind you, this was a pretty rare occurrence.Mostly,as we entered the Uraga Suido,Fuji San was shrouded in smog.Twenty four hours later, once the containers had been exchanged or the iron ore discharged,we would be on our way. That life is finished now, and  like nearly everyone else, I arrive in Tokyo via Narita and then  the'Friendly' airport bus .
'Hello Tokyo', an occasional series from the cycling capital of the world.
