You've been in Tokyo for too long when you..... (part I)

  1. Instinctively keep to the left when walking on the street/ riding an escalator/ riding a bike (and continue doing so in Belgium....)
  2. Forget to lock the bike when doing the shopping and leave it unlocked for hours at a time
  3. Cannot imagine stepping outside during the summer without a parasol or enormous cotton hat
  4. Know the Hibiya line like the palm of your hand.
  5. Know which is the right exit -and can find it- in Shinjuku station.
  6. Own at least one brow-sweat-mopping-towel-thingy (and are not afraid of using it)
  7. TOTO toilets hold no secrets for you.
  8. Manage to eat soba without spraying your clothes with sauce.
  9. Don't worry when the delivery guys have been while you were out, as you know they'll be back tomorrow (and the day after, and the day after that, until they find you)
  10. You feel bad about leaving minuscule crumbs on the floor after you've had a pic-nic
