Spacious long-term rental-style accommodation. Not much in the immediate vicinity, but very conveniently-located to everything else in Tokyo by metro - most sights/neighbourhoods were 3-5 stops away from the Nagatacho station. Tons of restaurants about a 10-minute walk away in the Akasaka area.

... from stoic Japanese businessmen to young people come to get some feline time. The place I went to was nearly impossible to find. It was up a tiny set of stairs on the 5th floor off of a busy street. I had to ask multiple people for directions (i.e. pointing at my phone and shrugging) even when my GPS was telling me I had arrived, but it was so worth it. Upon arriving, they print out a slip to charge by the hour, and during that time you can pet, play with or just relax with some ...
... of halls, arenas, art galleries and restaurants with a large central room, made of class and designed to look like the hull of a ship. Pretty stunning. The IMF and World Bank have meetings there, but the space is also used for ballet performance and other exhibitions. I met Hannah after work and we headed for some sushi at her favourite restaurant. I managed 3.5 plates, 2 of which were beer, 1 of which was chicken and half a maguro. Maguro is Japanese for ...
... and games and the alcohol (again, typically) is free, but that really only gets you so far. Like, 3 hours. Maybe 4. After that your life becomes about pressing the button on your chair to make sure your seat back was indeed reclined as far as possible (from bolt upright to undetectably less bolt upright) and obsessively watching the little airplane on your TV screen creep at a glacial pace across the flight path.
I have, on the 13 hour flight to ...
