The typhoon was expected on Sunday, and as soon as I heard the heavy rain start on Sunday morning at 6am I started thinking about how I was home alone and didn't have much food around the house, so I got dressed and stocked up on some staples at the local store, then went back to sleep. To my dismay it was sunny shortly after, the typhoon hadn't come yet and I had a full fridge (not bad).
I did what most people would do waiting for a typhoon, and went to a trashy afternoon foam party in a club in Roppongi. It was just as bad as it sounds, but obviously it was related to a work project and not something I actively sought. It was quite the cultural experience, and the club looks like it was filled with Shibuya 109 clientele. By the end I had had my fill of fried hair, deep tans and bikini tops, and had take out vegetarian burritos from my favourite Mexican joint. I also saw a samurai movie called "Unforgiven" (based on the 1992 movie of the same name) which was really good. I recommend seeing it, starring none other than Watanabe Ken.
On Sunday early morning the typhoon finally came, but I was peacefully asleep and I felt safe and found the wind and rain soothing. The typhoon did not last so long. Tokyo was okay but sadly many parts of Kyoto were flooded. I hope everyone is okay there. Mere hours later, the sky was clear, sunny, and the weather crisp- it had dropped about ten degrees. I love how clean the air feels post storm. And now I still have a fridge filled with food for the week, why not.
