On the flight, we got great service & I watched 3 movies - mostly not memorable. After I coughed a little, and sneezed once or twice I noticed a pile of passengers around me put face masks on - I sure hope they didn't think they would catch my cold! The flight was a JAL one and the service was great, but what really took my fancy (as it is a bit of a soapbox of mine) was that the hostesses put on the cutest aprons when it was time to serve the food. They were in JAL fabric in pastels yellows and greens with a cross over flattering front and the largest decorative bow at the back. I think it is time for a comeback for aprons!
So far, Japan is very warm & sticky (especially for us toowoomba-ites), the people very polite and very efficeint. Tonight we are opting to stay in our hotel room, have baths (deep bath-tubs - yay!), drink our duty free wine and have room service. Don't know much about this place but we will explore more tomorrow.
