Day 1: February 15, 2017
Kakehashi Day 1
We arrived in Tokyo after a long but surprisingly comfortable flight, due to the great service and food provided by ANA. Upon arrival we met our host Aranishi-san, who guided us to our hotel. Despite being completely exhausted, we were thrilled to see the beginnings of the Tokyo skyline. We had dinner at a delicious tempura – which means “heaven taste” – restaurant, where the server would come around and drop off fresh fried tempura in front of us.
Upon arriving in Tokyo, We ate a lovely meal of tempura for dinner. We are getting to know each other and the people from Brookings Instutue that are here with our NEC group. We enjoyed the ease of travel upon arriving and the friendly welcome we received.
