The City of Tokyo: By Kyle

Kon Bon Wa (Good evening),

Mike, Bryan and I are have had several opportunities to get out and see Tokyo a little bit and every time we turn the corner we are even more amazed. First of all, the architecture is amazing. The building we are working in is Fugi Television which is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen, take a look.

One of the most intriguing things we've noticed, aside from the amazing vending machines, is that there are raised pathways a on the sidewalks that are there to assist the blind. Also, in one of the districts we visited, there was a chirping sound on the cross walk which was also there to assist the visually impaired as they cross the street. I love this city. Not only is this city helpful to their handicapped, but it's clean. I've only seen one cigarette butt on the ground, other then that, there's no trash on the ground. Shu even went out of his way to pick up a piece of paper that non of us even noticed was there.

I mentioned this before, but everyone we've met so far has been so courteous and kind. Every comment usually begins with "excuse me" and ends with "Thank You" and everyone bows as a sign of respect.

The television program we are going to be on is called "Fountain or Spring of trivia". Filming has been a lot of fun. We seem to be getting used to having a camera around and I think we are able to act a little more natural. As with all reality T.V. shows, we've had to take a few takes of a scene, but there's really not a script, so we get to improvise a lot. We've been told that they want it to be more of a documentary, but we did a scene where Professor Hollen blew up at us and stormed out. We couldn't help but laugh, I think we did three takes of it before it was okay.

Tomorrow Mike and I are off to akihabara, the electrical district in Tokyo. We are going to have to incorporate more Electrical in the machine and this is the place we have to go ... Oh Darn.

Well that's about all for now. Will try to post videos soon, we just don't have a lot of time to edit them to make them somewhat interesting, that and it takes a while to upload.

Until next time, Ja Mata
