What's there to do at night? I love Roppongi, which is one of the major areas you go to when you just want to hang out and party. There is a spot that we checked out called Harlem, because I enjoy hip-hop and R&B. Harlem is in Shibuya, and it's a trip. You go in and it's like you are in a hip-hop club in the middle of Manhattan, but everybody is Asian. The dress is on, the music is on, and so is the dancing.
Where else would you go to check out music? Jazz is really big there. The main [place] is the Blue Note Tokyo. It's like the main spot if you want to go for jazz. It's the Tokyo cousin to the famous Blue Note in New York but with a bigger location. All top-quality, big-name guys go there. Another jazz spot I went to was the New York Bar, which was in the movie Lost in Translation. It's in the Park Hyatt somewhere on floor 50-something. You feel like you are in some kind of a spy movie from the way it looks. Everything is really dark, dark wood, with huge windows. Just a really beautiful place.
That's where Bill Murray met Scarlett Johansson in the movie. They were both drinking alone at the bar, right? Right, both separate from each other, looking at each other, and then, finally, one approaches the other, and I think she maybe whispered something. That was great. The Park Hyatt has the most amazing view of the city. It blew my mind how large Tokyo is; the city spans as far as the eye can see. You can see Mount Fuji from there. When I was there the first time, I climbed it. That was amazing. My two cousins and I climbed Mount Fuji, all the way to the top. I have no idea how long it took, but we brought the proper clothing and the proper snacks, sweaters, and whatnot. We started climbing in the evening and climbed all throughout the morning.
You climbed Mount Fuji at night? All night long. There are six ascending trails to the summit of Mount Fuji. The Kawaguchiko Trail is the most popular. Along the way, we stopped and took a nap. We did not get done until the next afternoon.
Why did you do it at night? That is what we were told to do. I don't know. Maybe the temperature; maybe it was too hot. People do it for spiritual reasons, but we did it just to say that we had done it. That's something no one can take away from us - the fact that we climbed it. Not many people in the world have climbed to the top of Mount Fuji.
