Konichiwa! Hello from me and Jo in Tokyo where the weather here is sunny, cold and crisp.
With David Buckley, President of Copyrights Asia
We’re away on a trade mission with the UKTI, flying the flag for Britain and meeting lots of Japanese contacts. While we’re here we’re launching our ‘Top Secret’ collection and getting some great feedback.

With Hisaki Shintaku as we entered Akasaka Umaya,
A Kabuki actor produced restaurant
We enjoyed our final after with Hisaki and Sho in a great traditional Japanese restaurant.
The restaurant offers interesting lunch boxes, whose menu is inspired and arranged from "catering lunch for Kabuki actor"
We enjoyed lots of wonderful fish during our trip
We find the Japanese culture so inspiring and beautiful
Farewell Tokyo, we will visit you again soon.
