Everything progresses smoothly and there are some deft Japanese touches. Our computers are all linked without wires to the printer (cue Chimpanzee with furrowed brow prodding printer with index finger). The table cloth is the brightest greenest and best ever. The rice is the bulkiest ever so we’re down to 52 grains per gram and have had to send out for more supplies. The local brushes are beautiful and Jon’s box of tricks has done the trick and we have tannoy announcements. We don’t even have to learn Japanese as local theatre maker and polymath Kakumoto Atsushi is here helping us out.
