The Sunkus convenience store near the Lodge still appears to be open. I remember looking around in it one evening for something modestly familiar as supper when I came across a can of Vienna Sausages. "Wow, Vienna Sausages!" I thought -- then I realized how bad it must be for me to think, "Wow, Vienna Sausages!" I passed on them; they are really only suitable for human conception when you're starving on a fishing trip, and there are alternatives in Tokyo. I didn't really do too badly, though. I really liked their rice triangles, especially with Tabasco sauce, and the "bun" (nikuman) came to be a favorite of mine once I realized it was already fully cooked. (I had seen baked bread and fried bread before, but never steamed bread.)
At one point, I became obsessed with pancakes. Normally I like pancakes OK, but I could probably go 3 or 4 years without eating them and never notice; I don't go to that much trouble when I'm cooking just for myself. However, the thought that I could not get pancakes really got to me. Fortunately, a friend at Tokyo Baptist pointed out that there was a Denny's near the church. I went in and had my pancakes, but that satisfied the craving and I never went back.
One of my favorite spots on campus was Sanshiro Pond. I would often go there and feed the carp while thinking about my research. The Japanese really know how to make gardens! Yet for some reason, I find it disconcerting that this guy goes around the pond counterclockwise. I don't remember ever going in that direction; I always went clockwise, though I'm not sure why. There were signs along the way, and maybe they were numbered. I don't remember.
Of course, Tokyo National Museum in Ueno Park was one of my favorite places in the city. I've always loved good museums, and these were fascinating.
