Another tip for a smooth transition, stay awake during the flights and in Tokyo. My strategy of staying awake for the duration of the journey here was to ensure a quick transition to the time zone. The firm beds here in the Guest House and an exhausted body were the perfect combination. I slept almost all night with only one interruption at 4:30 am. After checking the time I went back to sleep with no problem. Unfortunately, my alarm clock did not work but I did wake up in time for my first meeting this morning.
