Sat. A.M.  [8/19/72]  Hi -
We made it & our home here is on the 11th floor.  We were ready for bed for it was 7A.M. Ohio time when we got here & 8 P.M. Japan time.  All the signs at the airport are in English plus ? ? ?.  Even a TV channel in English plus a radio station in English.  We are to have a 1/2 day tour this afternoon of the city – 11 million here & so far looks more inviting than NYC.  Lucky on the plane – had a spare seat – so could really stretch out – plane was very full – some 300 people.  Love, Jean & Harold
