After 11 hours on a plane over the Pacific Ocean, with limited movies that weren't too exciting (City of Ember, anyone?) we finally approached Japan. Scenery is as follows: ocean, beach, flat brown fields. Once you got past the beach part, I swear it looked just like Iowa. I didn't have an opportunity to leave the Narita airport, so technically I haven't been to Japan.
However, if you ever have a fashion crisis, the Narita airport is the place to go: Hermes, Ferragamo and Coach all in one shopping concourse.
