Tokyo begins to return to normal

Tokyo begins to return to normal

I went out for a while today to see if Tokyo was beginning to return to normal.   It was...sort of.    While people were out and moving on with their lives it was missing the hustle, bustle and crowds that make it Tokyo.   I think a lot of people were shaken up by the events on Friday and what they have watched unfold on TV over the weekend.   What is needed now is time...
