And an old Tokyo favourite

I got back to Tokyo on Saturday morning. If I was worried that I had missed a key element of the weekend, my concern was soon moderated.

I met Nuala, Yoko and Yoko's friend Julien for dinner in Shibuya Jyu followed by a nightcap at Hub. I had assumed that would be the end of the night as it was getting late, but Melanie called Nuala and said she would be in Castillo later and that we should join.

And we did.

Castillo only plays 70s and 80s music and there is a serviceable dance floor at the back of the bar. The waitstaff has not changed in the six years I have been in Japan and you tend to run into a lot of people drifting through at various times (that means you Martin). It is good fun. By the way, this is the same place we went after Nuala's BBQ last summer and it was just as crazy then.

After several hestitant attempts at leaving, we finally did at 3am. Staying out that late is not the best way to get over the jet lag, but I did enjoy it.
