Say hi to... Iris in Tokyo
What was your first impression of Tokyo?
I am so tall!
What's the strangest thing you've seen?
First, heated toilet seats. And one time at 4.30 in the morning I saw some guys in a garden trimming plants with the smallest scissors I've ever seen!
Best Japanese food?
A Japanese pancake (okonomiyaki), it's so good. They make this pancake on a grill with vegetables and then you choose to eat it with fish or chicken.
You love Tokyo because...
The people here are so helpful. Even if they don't speak a word of English they will still help you find your way around. Tokyo is alive 24/7, when you walk around at night there are always people around.
What was the most typical Japanese experience?
I was having dinner with friends when I experienced my first earthquake ever, I was so scared! Nobody at the table looked up and continued as if nothing happened while I was freaking out. Then the couple next to us says "Oh you mean an earthquake? Yeah that was nothing".
