The Sushi Etiquette

You are sitting at the table in this sushi restaurant, with your plate of sushi in front of you. You start eating your sushi, and as you are looking around you notice that people are looking at you shocked, surprised, and maybe even a little bit disgusted. That's very unlikely.

Grooving in Yoyogi

Yoyogi Park first opened for the use of US military personnel. They used it as a residential area. In 1964 it became the Olympic Village for the Tokyo Olympics. It’s officially opened as a park in 1967. It has been noted as one of the largest parks in Tokyo. It has a wide array of lawns, a dog walking area, a large pond with a fountain, and a ginko tree forest that turns gold in the autumn.
