Close my face?

Actually, I'm completely wrong. The bar looks exactly like it does in Lost In Translation. (Watching it right now). The piano is even exactly where it was when we were there! It's not a split level, and they aren't sitting at the bar; they're sitting at the same rectangular table he sits at when she sends him sake. (There is no "bar" at this bar). (Oh, and mom, when she *does* send Bob Harris the sake, the table they're at (I think) is the table we were next to, where the girl kept curling up in her boyfriend's lap (or whatever the hell she was doing...))

It's amazing how much we assume and/or imagine things the way we want!

YAY! You're back! Though sorry you had to come back. I can think of worse things than missing your flight in Japan and being stuck there.

And I would absolutely KILL to be there when the cherry blossoms are blooming. Man that sounds like heaven.
