tokyo – first cultural mistake

When I got to my apartment building (after taking the limousine bus and a taxi because a taxi from the airport is too expensive), the nice woman at the front desk of my serviced apartment building (like a residence inn) showed me to my apartment. She came in with me to show me all the toys and gadgets (who knew a toilet/shower/washer/dryer could be so complicated?!). After a few seconds I realized how quiet she was moving around the hard wood floors. Then I looked down and saw that she had removed her shoes. Thankfully, I made that mistake in my own home and not someone else’s. I’ve decided to get in the habit now so I don’t make that mistake again.

Things I’m loving so far: the food!
Things I’m not loving so far: my lack of Japanese speaking skills!
