One of the benefits of living in Tokyo is access to all the spoils of the global economy. It's one of the things that makes Tokyo a different beast from the rest of Japan.

Even my new, still-scared stiff coworkers can't resist a pizza lunch. 20 people, 8 pies from Dominos, and viola... grass-roots internationalization. The Japanese Diet building in the background is a nice touch.
