The people came and packed up our stuff and took it all away - in 143 packages.
Getting ready to eject the sofa out the window and over the balcony; a standard procedure in Japan.
Wrapping a tandem
This being Japan the level of service and organisation was extraordinary.
They were amused by the number of unicycles, bicycles and tandems, and quantity of bicycle parts so it was fitting that the last package, no. 143 was Tandem Bicycle (blue). Naturally we have another tandem tucked away in our check-in baggage. Wouldn't do to be without any tandems at all for 6 whole weeks!
Don't know what Pickfords are like at the UK end, but at this end they were just as careful as you'd expect a normal Japanese moving crew to be.. (super-careful).
What now, you are thinking? This is Japan! Now we CLEAN!
