The first night in Tokyo, I had the evening free so I went to Roppongi (the party and prostitution district for foreigners in Tokyo) to visit the quite excellent magic bar "Magic bar Issey". I had been there once before and enjoyed it a lot.

This time I came there alone, so the close up magic was probably not that fun for them to do. A lone spectator is usually the most difficult audience. Many of the more interesting routines include several spectators doing different things and are not suitable for a single spectator. They did a nice enough job, though, and I later looked at one table magic performance at another table close to me after the stage show was over but before I left.
