Konichiwa from Tokyo

Well, I am currently in Tokyo on a job, leaving Australia with only seven hours notice. A British girl working as an English language teacher in Tokyo was found murdered with her body disposed of in a bathtub full of sand. Very mysterious, and to date the killer is still at large. The British Ambassador to Japan spoke at a press conference today and pleaded, on behalf of the father of the victim, for information on this horrific killing.
On a lighter note it is the most perfect time to be in Tokyo, one of the most incredible cities of the world (in my limited experience!). I have landed here just as the cherry blossoms are blooming, something that occurs for only two weeks and is a major highlight of the Japanese year.
