As one member of the team arrives back from California, we wave our hankies as another team member jets off. Christian Tate, our Art Director, left for two weeks in Asia yesterday, and he’s already managed to sample more than a handful of local delights. His Virgin Atlantic Upper Class seat was “perfect for the single traveller – very private” and he managed to get six hours of shut-eye, no doubt thanks to his pre- and mid-flight drinkies: “Champagne, G&Ts, Rioja and a brandy.” Naughty boy. He landed in Tokyo and immediately went on the hunt for delicious goodies and accidentally wandered into a beer festival. Barely has the man been in the city for 24 hours and he’s found the perfect little backstreet ramen joint, has met an Anglo/American couple who are planning to bring sake bars to London, and has eaten mostly raw meat and fish. Full reviews coming soon. Tomorrow: off to Kamakura on the coast, for shrine visiting, seafood and the beach.
