Asakusa, Tokyo , 11pm . A whole world of neon, and one lost teenager. Adam can't think how it had ever seemed like a good idea to come to Tokyo , and kind of not mention it to his parents But his sister's missing, last seen here, and with everyone at home apparently doing sweet FA about it, he didn't have much choice. With only five days to get his act together, Adam has got to sift through the seedy back-street hostess bars, dodge the local yakuza and find out where the hell Charlie is in the craziness that is Tokyo.
