LIT on my phone

I use a Treo 650 smartphone and I finally ripped my DVD of Lost in Translation so I can now watch it on my phone. I find that if I have a spare minute I can watch a scene and it immediately puts me in that LIT mood that I find so magical. The file only takes up around 200 megs on my 2 gig SD card.

I wont be able to to go Tokyo in 5 years, do you guys think the places in the movie are going to change alot? Unfortunately the Park Hyatt Tokyo Hotel has announced that the New York Bar will be closed for design renewal beginning on July 24 until September 1. Much of the movie was filmed in that b...

Sadly, if you want to see the New York Grill and Bar at the Hyatt as it appears in the movie you need to hurry. It closes July 24th for remodeling and reopens September 1st.

I'd suggest the Tokyo Prince Park Tower Hotel. Rooms start about $200 per night and if you request a room with a north or west facing view you'll have a fantastic view of the Tokyo Park Hyatt and Shinjuku from your room (request an upper floor). The Sky Bar on the top floor of the hotel has a fantas...

Took a photograph using my mobile phone looking out the window of the hotel room and realized afterwards that had I been sitting on the bed in my robe and slippers it would have looked a lot like the movie poster.

I leave for Narita Airport and the long flight home in a few hours. Last night was my last evening in Tokyo and I got back to the hotel late after a dinner of shabu-shabu with some good friends. I was sitting on the window sill looking out at the blinking red lights and one last time and I remembere...

I'm back in Tokyo on business. As I write this I'm listening to the Lost in Translation soundtrack and looking out the window of a high-rise luxury hotel at the blinking red lights atop every skyscrapper. The hotel is next to Zojoji Temple where the monks ring a large temple bell six times each day....

It's an Airsoft MP5 with a Tokyo-Mauri tracer adapter. Airsoft guns are very popular in Tokyo and the adapter allows the gun to shoot luminescent bb's.

I've read several books covering the subject of doing business in various countries including India and Japan but I've not taken any courses. Most of my business dealings in Japan are with coworkers and we are a U.S. based company so I think my Japanese coworkers are tolerant of my mistakes. There i...

I’ve traveled extensively in five continents and Tokyo is unique in terms of the isolation that one experiences as a foreign traveler. In Europe things are only marginally different than the U.S. Same for Australia and Latin America. Even in China, India or other parts of Asia a smile is a smile and...

Marketing department for a biotech company. I travel all over the world and the sense of isolation is greater in Tokyo than in any other place I've ever been. It was the perfect setting for the film. The location heightened the isolation that both Charlotte and Bob were already experiencing in their...

I went ahead and registered. Here is the homepage for the website http://tokyoyakei.cool.ne.jp/ . It contains hundreds of high-quality images of Tokyo. The images are not mine. I travel to Tokyo for business once or twice a year and have always been mesmerized by the city's skyline, the blinking red...
