First of all, we didn't fly China Eastern to Tokyo... the JAL 767 Mari and I took to Tokyo-Narita just hadn't arrived at our gate when I shot this (and then wasn't really visible from our gate for a photo op when it did roll in). Yes, it feels good to be back in Japan again! Big thanks to our good friends Megu and Hiro for meeting us at the airport and taking us into Tokyo! And the funniest part about our flight to Japan? That would have been running into Tom and Tuulikki in the line to go through immigration in Japan. I've met Tom many times before, but it's funny that the first time meeting Tuulikki was on Japanese soil! (We also found out that we were separated by one row and the centre aisle on the flight and never noticed each other!) Vancouver International Airport, November 10, 2011.
