Won't Miss #128 - no stars at night

This is absolutely a Tokyo experience, and is certainly not confined to cities in Japan, but it is something which has only happened to me while living here and has been a part of my Japan experience. All of the light pollution in Tokyo makes it impossible to see the stars at night. That means I haven't seen stars in the sky for nearly 20 years.

I won't miss having the stars blotted out by the copious quantity of big city lighting.
