Currently messaging y'all from a Starbucks in Yokohama. Been both shocked (culturally?) and severely impressed thus far.
Everything is orderly and clean. There have been train delays (which I'm informed are extremely rare), but even a delay of a couple of minutes is thoroughly explained and apologised for. I was greeted to this Starbucks by every single staff member turning towards me and chorusing 'konnichiwa'; the service really put most English coffee shops to shame (Starbucks included, if you can call it a coffee shop over there).
Anybody visited before and have any recommendations as to what to do / see? I've got a couple of weeks (one in Tokyo, one in the Kansai region). I didn't really want to do to touristy stuff, so just booked a few Airbnb rooms and a JR Pass.
