Just as I was heading to the gate to catch my flight leaving Narita airport I passed a last-chance culture display. In the vast neutral space of the terminal the small tatami covered stage, complete with paper screen, umbrella, lantern with Japanese characters and a koto was like some kind of cultural drinking fountain. A last sip before leaving? A final opportunity to get with Japanese culture, to collect a final experience, to take a photo.
It was even free! Free culture is not to be resisted!
