 Ohayo gozaimasu from Tokyo!
by Sarah Beetson
 
Freelance artist and illustrator, Sarah Beetson recently visited Tokyo, the de facto capital of Japan and is home to over 35 million people.

Take a look at the Japanese capital through her eyes...

Shibuya crossing
The one from the movie "Lost in Translation" - which has about 8 crossings and is pretty mad at rush hour in the rain with everyone walking into each other! I saw 1 woman get stranded in the middle as all the cars came rushing past! Much better viewed from Starbucks above.

The restaurant that inspired Tarantino to create the set for the sword fighting scene in Kill Bill - you know the really gory one with the Japanese girl punk band?! Yummy tempura and nasu dengaku!

The A-bomb dome
The only thing left after the 1945 atom bomb exploded 120m above it. It was a very sombre experience visiting the peace park, especially seeing all the photos and glass cabinets containing clothing worn by victims, etc, but incredibly inspiring the way the Japanese have dealt with it in such a peaceful way - you can buy "Hiroshima city of peace t-shirts" in the museum.  The Americans and the Brits could learn a lot from them. I was also astounded to learn that the countries who currently possess the largest arsenals of nuclear weapons apart from Russia and India are - The UK, The USA and France!!!!!! Am I rather ignorant - or has something been 'kept' from us....?
