i spent a wee bit of time there and was impressed that a fallen drunken sailor in the streets would be left alone to wake up on his own, without anything being stolen. also, pissing in the streets was pretty cool 'cuz nobody seemed to give a shit.... not that you could or would shit in the street.
also the vast amount of people running around the streets in a seemingly perfect order, standing on corners patiently waiting for the correct light to signal their walking, with no sign of jay-walking, or any other impatience, impressed me.
are these simple things that stick in my mind still typical?
btw: do you have a japanese girlfriend? they were really cool when i was renting their wares for an evening of pleasure.
