Sayonara Tokyo!

For a quick look at what is a regular nightlife scene for many foreigners, teachers included, in Tokyo, Steve Tilley's article for the Edmonton Sun is an interesting read. He spent his last night in Tokyo, before heading back to Canada, in Roppongi - the "Den of Sin" that is the city's most loved and most hated entertainment district. As the writer says about the occupation of his fellow revellers, "modelling is one of the most common jobs held by foreigners in Japan, at least those too pretty to teach English."
