Where the streets have no name

The streets of Tokyo haven’t any names or plates and the house numbers are given by construction dates. Hopeless for foreigners to orientate. Even taxi drivers are sometimes lost in those crowded streets. But when you ask people for the way you always get a long and detailed description where to go. In 90% this is the wrong way. But they are just too friendly and can’t tell you: “Sorry, I don’t know the way”.
