Very Soft Landing

This my fourth tour of japan, I burned up all the initial freakout on the first few trips and now it feels oddly familiar. I've only just arrived, changing planes in an airport, but I'm overwhelmed by the politeness and over-service. Every menial job has double employment, one person to actually do the job, the other some well-groomed girl to smile and hand the purchased object, indicate the proper direction to walk, or just stand there and occasionally bow. Nowhere could be farther from spain.
