The Appeal of Tokyo for Aya Kakisawa

Tokyo is a city where you can find anything you want or anything you wish to see if you look for it.

For example, if you decide that you'd like to learn French cooking, classes like that can be hard to find in some areas, but in Tokyo you're sure to find it if you look for it. Minor films and musicians from abroad that are known only in their own countries often come to Tokyo for screening and concerts. In that sense you will find Tokyo as the city that is closest to the world.

Trains run on time here, so it's easy to reach your destination according to plan. Occasionally a train might be delayed, which can be frustrating for some folks, but compared with other major cities such delays are amazingly rare.

In terms of cuisine, the delicious flavors from the entire world find their way to Tokyo. The logistics are top-notch so we can gather fresh ingredients without any problem. Although the speed is different here. Yet even so, there's a strong inclination among chefs to hone their skills to perfection. Instead of setting up their own restaurants right away, many chefs devote themselves for years to perfecting their craft.

Tokyo offers the best of both worlds: things that are happening very quickly, and things that need to takeplenty of time. That's the allure of Tokyo.
