Tokyo trip 5/6. .
.
This will be my work home next spring and summer — Tokyo Big Site International Exhibition Center - and a portion of it will serve as @tokyo2020 International Broadcast Centre — the home to the world’s Broadcasters and the host Olympic Broadcasting Service and the Main Press Center. .
.
Opened in 1996 on the Tokyo Bay waterfront ... those pyramids of the conference center are the most distinctive feature. This is the largest hall in Japan at 230,000 sq meters - which is 2.6 million square feet or 10 really big Walmart Super Centers (New York’s Javits Center is about 50,000 smaller) .
Can’t really share inside what we’re doing. But it’s a year out and crazy to think the outer walls of the broadcast spaces are already installed and they’re finishing off the mechanical.  We move in next Spring after all the walls and stuff we need are installed. .
.
The last picture is of the Swimming and Diving Olympic venue. They’re building things fast! .

Tokyo trip 4/6. .
.
This post is about travel. It’s a 14 hour direct flight from JFK to Tokyo’s Narita airport— about 6,800 miles.  Narita is about an hour and 40 miles or so outside of the Tokyo Center — and a nice airport by world standards. (They’re doing some construction in the immigration hall but that’s temporary). We had a Boeing 777 on @japanairlines_jal and I was treated to a comfy business class pod. 14 hours is really long. On the way back I slept for six hours and still watched three movies while having a full meal and a few snacks. And it’s 13 hours from Eastern Daylight time — so I left around noon on Sunday and arrived around 2pm in Monday. Also on the flight back I left at 6pm on Friday and arrived at 6pm on Friday. Go figure!! .
.
At Narita - when they check you in - the desk agent comes out from behind the podium, greets you, and escorts you from the line to her podium.  They don’t seem to do that here in the US. ☺️ You can buy WiFi for the flight - about $16 which is cool because it’s satellite delivered and available most of the flight.  The video system has tons and tons of programming. . .
Apparently 4 is unlucky as theres no 4th floor in the hotel (sounds like death) — but there is a 13th floor. You have to push the door close button in the elevator otherwise it buzzes after 10 seconds or so — and so do the other people in the elevator. 🙄 .
.
.
The subway machine can also do English but only Yen and special payment cards - no universal debit or credit cards ...so that was a fail for me 😒. Uber is available but it’s black car level of service only.  Everything was really clean there. . .

Tokyo trip 3/6. .
.
One afternoon I went around the @aquacity_odaiba_official mall that was near our hotel homebase. What’s interesting is that level 3 was all global/western brands (Gap, Under Armor, Coach, Disney) but level 4 was all Asian/Japanese brands - clothing, snacks; animae/magna stuff.  Note at night — some of the Japanese stores didn’t have traditional solid doors to protect the merchandise— just some ropes.  The upper floors were restaurants - including a Weber Grill Grill restaurant and a Starbucks.  These vending machines are all over Tokyo and have an extensive selection of beverages and snacks. .
.
There’s a @tokyo2020 pop up shop there and there was a ticket machine. I never got to check out the ticket machine because there was always a line. I guess that’s a good sign!
.
. 
This is Odaiba - it’s like a cross in my mind of the reclaimed land of battery park city in NY and the master planning dimension of Century City in LA..

Tokyo trip 2/6. .
.
That’s not our State of Liberty!  One morning I went for a jog around the Odaiba island of Tokyo Bay Harbor — where the triathlon will be held. Lots of concrete buildings but lots of open spaces and parks. A mix of hotels, malls, outlets, amusements, office buildings, etc.  I think to run their path is basically a 5k.  Beach volleyball will be here — not too far from the giant Transformer..

Odabia is like a cross in my mind of the reclaimed land of battery park city in NY and the master planning dimension of Century City in LA. That’s the Rainbow Bridge to downtown Tokyo. .

Tokyo trip 1/6.  So last week I had an impromptu business trip for the Tokyo Olympic Games - which open in just under a year. I had to/got to cover for someone who couldn’t travel at the last minute. My first trip to Japan and my first attendance of the World Broadcaster Meetings. Quite the experience! .
.
The is the Odabia Tokyo Bay Area ... it’s like a cross in my mind of the reclaimed land of battery park city in NY and the master planning dimension of Century City in LA. That’s the Rainbow Bridge to downtown Tokyo. The building at the end is the Indoor Volleyball Olympic Venue (No indoor peeps until next year!) .

Moulin Rouge is now in previews - Opens July 25 at Broadway’s Al Hirschfeld Theatre.  Last batch of photos from our trip to Paris. .
.
.
A truly beautiful and spectacular show!  We were fortunate to sit at the Can Can tables - and I took a picture to show it - basically where the orchestra pit would normally be. This amazing action occurred all around us. (You are quite close to your fellow patron). You totally feel the athleticism in the dancing, the emotion in the singing, and the dazzle of the production design (h/t @derekmclane and team  and costumes. (I’m biased!). .
