For the past few days, I have been impressed with how courteous and quiet everyone is here in Tokyo. That peace has just been shattered by an American member of the Five Arrows basketball team here in the lobby of my hotel in Tokyo. I assume he's part of the team because he's really tall and is wearing the jacket. The guy is blabbing away on Skype very loudly (complete with cursing), and the hotel staff are all too polite to tell him to shut up. The difference between him and everyone around us couldn't be more striking.
