Answer to Jeopardy Question from 9/15

Why is it easy for a stranger to get lost in Tokyo?

It’s easy to get lost in Tokyo because it is one of the biggest, most populous cities in the world. It has grown with virtually no zoning, so that factories stand next to houses, next to schools, next to bars, next to ancient Shinto Temples, and there are almost no street names, numbers or signs. The best way to tell a stranger how to find you is to memorize the locations of coffee shops in various parts of the city, rehearse giving directions to them, and then describe their location to your visitors. Then you can go and meet them there.
