Our neighbor Nancy, who lives in a house across the road from our apartment building and teaches kids how to cook, writes:
Whatever your concerns may be about coming back to Tokyo, starving to death and not being able to go to the loo should not be on your list!! Shops are full but not overflowing but I bought loo roll, water, eggs, milk, butter, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, pork, asparagus, beer, wine...you have to get to the shops when they open to get the water and it is limited to 3 bottles per person.
Will post on jamjnr a couple of classes for next week. Come home asap - I am the only gaijin left in Hiroo...
We had pan fried mackerel with rocket & potato salad for dinner. Hardly slumming it...Mind you the street is deathly dark - no one has their lights on. Tokyo Tower is not lit up and neither is Roppongi Hills -- it's quite surreal. We're sitting here with no lights on and candles. Makes me wonder why we don't do it more often!
