What-- you land in Tokyo and hit the Ginza looking for Starbucks?

Not intentionally... After I freshened up in my hotel (ANA Hotel Tokyo, in Akasaka), I was dead tired, but didn't want to sleep yet (it was only 6pm), so went for a brief wander, and, well, the first coffee place I found was a Starbucks.

Just like the States!
