I was approached by a Japanese man tonight, in the Shinagawa station, who seemed to fancy a chat in English.
He wanted to know if I live in Tokyo.
No, I said, I’m just here for a few days, for work. What made you think I may live in Tokyo?
The fact that you look very much at ease, as if you’d been here for a long time, he said.
I explained that I am well-travelled, visit many countries, and do all I can to understand rules and behave like a local.
In that case, he said, you are a black belt in travelling!
Made my day… 🙂
