DAY SIX IN TOKYO
I went all over the City!! It’s huge!! I went to Shibuya, which is like 3 of our Times Square! I went to Shimokitazawa where I let a Chiropractor work on my shoulder. We were THUMPING in there! I refused to yell for mercy and then he got out the hammer!! He bought in a couple of the youngins to hold me down and went to work on me…then he had the nerve to ask me to come back!! I said Hell yeah!! HAHAHA BUT I slept pain free in my shoulder for the first time since last July!!!! Although my neck and back are hurting from his elbow, knees and the hammer!
I also went to Ginza and Shimbashi yesterday. The Hotels here are going to be waaaaaay to expensive in the City, so I’m thinking we stay where I’m at now: Shinagawa Seaside, which is only 2-3 stops on the train outside of Tokyo proper.
More to come!! I’m heading to the Temple today and to see the Big Buddha!
DAY SEVEN IN TOKYO
Yesterday I went to the Great Temple.
I finished the day with Traditional Japanese Food; Including several types of grilled chicken on a kabob, a delicious Fish, Vegetables, shrimp and scallop, noodles with dried sea weed (pronounced: oooh-dun) and the best Sake I have ever tasted called “Beauty of the South”.
I am 13 hours ahead of you guys so it is morning here. A new day to see the World!! All Praises to God!
DAY EIGHT IN TOKYO
My body is crashing!
Last night I went to a Business Dinner at a Luxury Sky-Rise!! It overlooked the Rainbow Bridge and a lot of Tokyo. The food was Absolutely SUPERB: Grilled Fish, Fresh “you make your own Sushi” with Salmon, Tuna and Sea Weed wraps, Rice, Clams, Fried Chicken Balls, Vegetable Tempura, Yakitori Flavored Chicken, Fresh Salad and Sake and a Honey Flavored Whiskey. They threw in the Chicken for me…very nice!!
Today I go back to see the Chiropractor. He put a hurting on me before, but my shoulder has been MUCH better! I have slept nearly pain free for the first time in nearly a year.
SHA-CHO Colon. (that means CEO Colon).
DAY NINE IN TOKYO
Obviously I was saving the Best for Last!!
I went to see my Chiropractor and he was amazingly easy on me and taped me so perfectly that they look like tattoos. I had a torn tendon in my shoulder that hadn’t healed properly since last July. He worked on me and I slept pain free for the first time since last Summer!!! I owe him a great deal of gratitude. The 2 Doctors I saw in the States only gave me pills for the pain/muscle relaxers and a cortisone shot–but never tried to FIX THE PROBLEM!!
I then went to see the Most Famous Buddha in the World and was repping my Pologrounds Tee shirt so the World knows that WE GET AROUND!
Ahya took me for the BEST tempura I have ever had in my life at an Old Japanese restaurant and then to dinner at a (Spanish) Restaurant for Sangria, appetizers and Seafood Paella.
It was a Fabulous Day in Tokyo!!
DAY TEN IN TOKYO
Time to head back to the Ranch. It was a REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE.
Special Thanks to Ahya and her Crew/Fam for giving me such a warm welcome. I’m in L.A. and ready to get back to the A!
