New Otani

I lived here for 6 months. More on that later. For now, I just want to remark how it pretty much looks the same as did in the 60's when it played the role of the headquarters of the evil Osato Chemicals in the Bond flick "You Only Live Twice". They only change that I can detect is that they've redone the windows.

The bottom view is from the 400 year old garden next to the hotel. The whole time I lived there I never checked it out. I went this time. It's definitely better than the "garden" at the New Otani in Los Angeles, but it's not that great. I wasn't missing anything.
