Holy Crap. I’m Staying at Osato Chemical

June 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

So, I landed in Tokyo yesterday and have been touring the city. The first movie I ever saw that primarily took place in Japan was You Only Live Twice, so I decided to surf for some of the locations where they shot the film. Who knows? I thought maybe a few of the sites might have survived, and I might find myself in the same neighborhood of one at some point.

The first location that came to mind was “Osato Chemical” — the building where Bond met with one of the villains and had a memorable fight scene. As I sat in my room at the New Otani Hotel, I tried to find out if that building survived 45 years of progress, and if so, who occupies it today.

Guess what? I occupy it! Osato Chemical IS the New Otani Hotel.
