- 9. It's the best place to shop if you're over 60.
- 36. Its red-light district is the least dangerous.
- 41. The world's best service.
- 46. The most prolific festivals.
Grant Burgess, from Newcastle University, is staying at this hotel, and called me to join him for a drink, but I had just starting eating in my room, so begged out. He will be one of the featured speakers today for the 35th celebration of President Tadashi Matsunaga. Both the talks and party will occur in this hotel. Grant is one of Tadashi's PhD students who went on to become a professor. The other four speakers are also in this category: from Waseda, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Kyoto University and Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. I will be giving a 3-minute presentation at the party to say whatever I want.
